According to latest reports, Cardiff City are currently investigating their former player and current U18s coach, Craig Bellamy for bullying allegations.
The Blue Birds manager, Neil Warnock also confirmed reports by saying, “Ken Choo, the chief exec, is dealing with this. It’s not in my remit. I don’t know anything about it.”
Daily Mail previously claimed that the parents of a Cardiff academy player have issues complaints against Bellamy to the club’s higher authority. The player has left the club since the incident as Bellamy has been further blamed for using ‘xenophobic, anti-English remarks’ in training. Cardiff CEO, Choo and chairman, Mehmet Dalman is leading the investigation but has not arrived at a conclusion yet.
Bellamy has 78 caps to his name for the Wales national team and has represented various teams including Manchester City, Liverpool, West Ham United and Cardiff themselves in the Premier League. He was strongly considered for the head coaching position for the current Wales side but was beaten out by Ryan Giggs.
Bellamy is also a Sky Sports pundit and could face professional consequences from the magnetic broadcasting company if found guilty.
After retiring from football, he returned to Cardiff to join their coaching staff in 2014 and even was accepted for the head managerial post of League One side, Oxford United ahead of the 2018/19 season. The Welshman decided to remain at Cardiff and withdrew his application.
