New Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says he wants Craig Bellamy to stay at the club following recent speculation linking the Welshman with a move away from Anfield.
Bellamy, 32, is a target for Championship side Cardiff City – where he spent a season loan before re-joining Liverpool last summer, and QPR have also been linked with him this week.
Rodgers though has no plans to let the passionate forward leave, saying “It would take a really special and unique opportunity for Craig to walk out of Liverpool and for us to go our separate ways.”
“I had a really positive chat with Craig on Monday. It was good to meet him and get his side of the Liverpool story. He’s a big supporter of this club – he loves the club.
“He’s a good guy. He has a real passion for Liverpool Football Club and that’s the type of people I want here.
“I like his intensity, his work-rate and his passion so I would love him to be here.
“It would take a really special and unique opportunity for Craig to walk out of Liverpool and for us to go our separate ways.
“If anything changes on that from a personal perspective then him and I will talk about that.”
