Stevie tjáir [sig um Bellamy](http://www.liverpoolfc.tv/news/drilldown/N152704060623-1238.htm):
>”When all the Liverpool lads out here in Germany heard the deal had gone through, all of us were really happy. I was made up when we were first linked with Craig Bellamy, because I’ve always thought he was a top quality player.
>”I’ve never met him other than during a match, but I’ve had a few arguments with him on the pitch a few times. But that’s something I like about him. It doesn’t do anyone any harm to have what you might call a bit of a nasty streak, in a good way.
>”We all know he’s got a bit of character about him, and the one thing everyone can see is he’s got a real winning mentality and determination to be successful. That’s something you’ve got to have to play for Liverpool.”

>”When I met Craig and spoke with him it was clear he is a very passionate person who was very excited by the prospect of playing for Liverpool,”
>”I’m sure there will be no problems. He is a clever boy and he said to me he knows this is his last opportunity to play for one of the biggest clubs. This is an opportunity I know he is determined to take and that is important.
Einnig kemur fram að Bellamy er farinn aftur til Grikklands til að halda áfram brúðkaupsferðinni, en kemur svo til Liverpool og verður kynntur 1.júlí. Einnig segir Benitez að ekkert sé komið á hreint með málefni Djibril Cisse.
