Bellamy says he must put Man City ahead of Wales

Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy admits at this stage in his career he must put his club ahead of Wales.

Bellamy, 30, said: "If we get into the Champions League, which we are all trying to do, and I'm still a very big part of that, then I have to be realistic.

"Can I compete in the Champions League, Premier League and every day do battle to fight for my place in the team? Would I be able to play 60 games a season?

"Probably not. I know if my knee is sore one week then realistically playing a friendly in Australia on a Wednesday, for example, may not work out for me."
