Craig Bellamy has stepped down from his position following accusations of bullying.

Cardiff City are to investigate a bullying claim against under-18s coach and former Wales striker Craig Bellamy.

It was reported that the parents of an academy player have complained to the club about Bellamy’s behaviour towards their kid, who has since left the club.

The young footballer’s father claims Bellamy used to favour Welsh players over English players.

In a statement Bellamy said:  

“I am aware of allegations that have been made against me via the media. I understand the need for Cardiff City to undertake a full investigation in response to these allegations and - at my own suggestion - I have temporarily removed myself from my coaching position in order to cooperate fully with the club's inquiry.

Obviously, I am saddened both by the allegations and the manner in which they were made and I categorically refute them.

I fully expect to return to my coaching role and have sought legal advice as to my position. I will be making no further comment until the full investigation by the club has concluded."
