Bellamy proud of Dalglish Liverpool link up
Craig Bellamy has admitted that the new manager Kenny Dalglish was the main reason behind his sensational return to Liverpool. Bellamy signed a contract with the Reds after leaving Man City.
"I've grown up with Kenny Dalglish, now to be signed by him is a massive honour," Bellamy told Liverpoolfc.tv. "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.
"For me, the players they've signed this summer, there has been a lot of British which takes me back to when I started watching Liverpool. It looks so familiar to me and to be part of it is such a huge honour.
"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. 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.
"The Liverpool team when I first signed is a lot different to the Liverpool side of the last couple of years so we need to get back into the Champions League and look to push the club on from there again."
