EXCLUSIVE: EPL Talk sat down with Manchester City striker/winger Craig Bellamy recently to get his views on a variety of topics including what it was like to play under managers Mark Hughes and Gary Speed, as well as what it felt like to score those memorable goals for Liverpool against Barcelona and for Manchester City against Man United.

The Welsh striker was in Orlando, Florida last week to coach children at the 2011 Disney Soccer Academy. Organized by Midwest Soccer Academy, youngsters travelled from across America to attend the two one-week coaching clinics. The children received coaching advice from several Premier League stars in addition to Bellamy such as Chris Samba, Paul Robinson and Aaron Hughes.

During the exclusive interview with Bellamy, EPL Talk Podcast co-host Kartik Krishnaiyer discussed several topics.

    No Question about next season????!???!!!?

    • The Gaffer says:

      D-Train, thanks for the question. While it’s a valid point, I don’t think Craig would have provided a helpful answer to the question since everything is up in the air at the moment.

      Besides that, I hope you enjoyed the interview.

      Cheers,
      The Gaffer

    I heard second hand that he was being offered to Everton. Strange since Bellamy and Moyes had sat down a few years ago to try and hammer out a deal but it didn’t work out. Bellamy wanted too much money.

    There’s no question that he would have to take reduced wages if he came to Everton. 90,000 a week for an off-injured forward is way more than Moyes would pay (and way more than anyone on the club currently earns). There’s a slim possibility of a loan for next year but ManCity really wants to sell him off apparently.
