Former Norwich City man Craig Bellamy has tipped the Canaries to retain their Premier League status despite Norwich not having won in eight matches in all competitions.
The ex-Welsh forward came through the youth ranks at Norwich and played for the first-team from 1996 to 2000 before joining Coventry for a fee of £6 million and became the club’s record signing in the process.
Bellamy played for a massive nine different clubs during a lengthy career as his reputation grew and went on to feature for the likes of Newcastle United, Liverpool and Manchester City.
Now retired, Bellamy told the panel on Sky Sports’ ‘Goals on Sunday’
Credit to Norwich yesterday. I saw enough (to suggest they can stay up). It’s going to be difficult for them – it is for any team that is promoted. I’m quite optimistic they might stay away (from relegation) this year.
Norwich lost 1-0 to surprise league leaders Leicester City yesterday, thanks to a late Leonardo Ulloa goal which heaped more misery on Alex Neil’s side.
The Canaries host an ever-improving Chelsea side on Tuesday night before heading to Wales to play Swansea on what is a “must win” game for Norwich City.
