Man City striker hits out at Chelsea captain

The game was the first on-field meeting between Terry and Wayne Bridge following the Chelsea defender’s affair with the mother of the City star’s son.

Bellamy told Sky Sports: “You guys (the media) make a lot more of it you know.

“I know what JT is like and nothing surprises me about it, so I’m not going to comment on that. I think everybody in football knows what the guy is like, but that’s off the field.

“On it he’s an outstanding player. He’s a great captain for Chelsea. It’s always going to be difficult when you play him and his team.”

Bellamy believes their 4-2 win will prove a big boost in their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.

He said: “Today was a big, big result for us because we have come away from the last month, we haven’t been playing particularly well and it showed in the first half when we got going with the counter-attack with Carlos up there, especially on his own, which was difficult.

“I thought we got closer to him in the second half and we’ve got players that can score goals.”
