Sears: West Ham pal Bellamy like father figure

Freddie Sears admits he sees West Ham teammate Craig Bellamy as a role-model.

He said: "Dean Ashton helps me a lot, along with Craig. I am quite similar to Craig and he has been giving me tips on how to improve as a player. He is certainly someone to listen to because he is a full international and played in the Champions League with Liverpool, so I can learn from him.

"He has been telling me about how to lead my lifestyle - not going out and doing silly things - and he has also been helping me with my technique.

"He's kind of like a father figure for me and seems like he's calmed down."
