West Ham boss Curbs tells Bellamy: Do your talking on the pitch

The £7.5million signing has been involved in much controversy in the clubs he has played for.

Hammers boss Curbs said: “It’s about time Craig did his talking on the pitch. He is an exceptional talent and I’m certain West Ham fans will see him perform.

“There are players here who have a hunger to succeed. Look at Scott Parker, he has come here wanting to get back into the national side and it’s the same with Matthew Upson, who wants to play for England again.”
