Man City striker Bellamy: Only Hughes, Sir Bobby understood me

Manchester City star Craig Bellamy admits only two managers have ever understood him.

Speaking with The Times, he says that only two managers have got him right, Sir Bobby Robson and Mark Hughes. You wonder, then, why he does not change tack, try demanding less and fitting in more.

"I've done that once at a football club and they never got anything out of me," he says. "I was a shadow of a player. So I thought, 'Sod it. I'll go about it my way.' If it rubs people up the wrong way, so be it."
