Bellamy and Sky job

craig_bellamy_1218988cControversial former Hammer Craig Bellamy is reportedly being considered as Gary Neville’s Sky Sports replacement.

Neville has signed a six-month contract to be the head coach of Valencia and stepped down from his Sky duties last week.

The decision has still to be finalised but Bellamy – who was an Iron between 2007-09 – is thought to be among the leading contenders and is said to be ‘thrilled’ at the idea of taking on the role, although Sky are keeping their final decision about who is alongside Jamie Carragher for Monday night’s game between Everton and Crystal Palace under wraps.

Sky consider their Monday Night Football show to be one of the jewels in the crown of their coverage. Bellamy played for Norwich, Coventry, Newcastle, Celtic, Blackburn, Liverpool, West Ham, Manchester City and Cardiff in a colourful career.

One observer said on Sunday: ‘Bellamy would have a lot to say. He could be very entertaining and spiky.’

Bellamy made 26 appearances for the Hammers, scoring nine goals, a strike rate of just over a goal every three games before joining Manchester City for a reported £14 million.
