No extra pressure now – Bellamy

Mark Hughes was sacked by City after a 4-3 victory over Sunderland

and Bellamy was one of those deeply unhappy with the Welshman’s

sacking. However, the 30-year-old insists he is fully behind

Mancini and has rejected claims the players are being scrutinised

more heavily following the arrival of the Italian. “I have heard

people saying we are all on trial now that Roberto Mancini has

taken over at City,” Bellamy said in the Daily Mirror. “But at a

top club, you are always on trial. If you don’t play well, there

will somebody there to come in and take your place. “I play for my

three kids more than anyone else. I want to try to set them an

example. “All I can do is give my best and see where that takes

me.” Bellamy, often seen as a controversial figure, has been linked

with a move away from Eastlands in January, but he insists he is

not interested in a transfer. While he is a fans’ favourite at

Eastlands, he also revealed that he gets spurred on when opposition

supporters boo him during a game. “When fans boo me, it gives me

something extra,” he added. “It gives me such a lift. “It makes me

want to embarrass a player or score a good goal or close down when

I don’t need to close down. “My aim then is to try and upset the

fans as much as I can. “Bravery is getting on the ball and showing

the crowd you are not afraid to make a mistake. That’s what I try

and live by. “If I am having a bad time, I get on the ball as much

as I can. Me being annoyed is nothing personal. “It’s what gets me

motivated. I’ve tried to be quiet and if I’m quiet with my mouth,

I’m quiet with my feet.”
