Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy knows there were doubts from the club's owners when he arrived.
Bellamy is playing some of the best football of his career this season, but admits he had to win over some doubters inside the club.
He told the Manchester Evening News: "When I signed here a few Manchester City fans weren't sure because when Craig Bellamy's name is mentioned people think `Do we really need this guy?'
"But I understand that - I'm not everyone's cup of tea.
"I hear the owners Googled me. I'm sure they asked the manager `Are you really sure about buying this player?'
"But I am demanding and nine times out of ten I'm wrong. A lot of money has been spent on me but the manager said to me even though players will be coming in I still have a lot of faith in you.
"And being with better players at a club like Manchester City, a club that really sees a big future, is a pleasure to be involved in."
