Man City attacker Bellamy shock favourite for Cardiff manager job

Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy is the shock favourite to succeed Dave Jones at Cardiff City.

The Daily Mail says Bellamy is a leading contender to replace Jones, who was sacked as Cardiff boss after the club's play-off failure.

Bellamy is still contracted to Manchester City but would jump at the chance to take charge at his home-town team in a player-manager role.

Just a few weeks ago, the striker insisted he 'definitely' wanted to stay at Cardiff if he could secure another season-long move from Eastlands because he is determined to get the club promoted.

But it remains to be seen whether City's powerbrokers would sanction the write-off of Bellamy's £90,000-a-week wage over the next 12 months, which would allow the 31-year-old to become Cardiff manager.
