Since the summer of 2019, Craig Bellamy has been working as an assistant coach at Anderlecht where he joined his former Manchester City teammate Vincent Kompany. Except that the Welshman has decided to end his collaboration with the Mauves to cure his depression. It was the Belgian rock who revealed this information at a press conference, just after a convincing 7-2 victory against Mechelen. “From a young age, he fought against clinical depression” , said the son of the mayor of Ganshoren, with palpable emotion in his voice.

Bellamy has received many messages of support from the football world, starting with Anderlecht. “The tremendous energy Craig has brought to all of us is priceless, said sporting director Peter Verbeke. So it makes sense that we give him all the time and rest he needs to find himself fully. ” Jérémy Doku also split a tweet to thank his former coach for everything he has given him.
