Bellamy excited by Anfield return

Bellamy first left the Anfield club in 2007

Craig Bellamy is excited about the prospect of playing under Kenny Dalglish and returning to Liverpool.

Bellamy left the Anfield club in 2007 following a year at the club during which he played 42 matches and scored nine goals. The 32-year-old is understood to have signed a two-year contract with The Reds having fallen out of favour at Manchester City.

“I've grown up with Kenny Dalglish, now to be signed by him is a massive honour,” he said.

“This is an exciting time. When Kenny took over, watching as a fan last season I got the buzz as well and it was great to see Liverpool end the season well.

“To every Liverpool fan, Kenny is probably the best player ever to pull on the red shirt so that speaks for itself. He was the first player-manager to do the double and just how he conducted himself really (made a difference).

“I know we've had bits of success since then but the club hasn't been the same since he left, so to come back in and be a part of this with the players who are here - it's a good time.”

Liverpool are currently priced at 16/1 to win the Premier League and 4/7 to achieve a top four finish by bookmaker Betfred. Dalglish’s side have begun the season with seven points from three games including wins over Bolton and Arsenal.
