Craig Bellamy has spoken of his admiration for Luis Suarez and declared him ‘a special player.’
The pair meet in Cardiff on Wednesday night when Team GB take on Uruguay in the Olympic Games, and the Welsh international is well aware of the threat Liverpool’s No.7 poses to his team’s chances.
Team GB need just a draw to ensure qualification for the quarter-finals.
“Luis is such a good player,” said Bellamy. “The one thing about him is he can create something out of nothing.
“You may think he is going down a dead end and there is no way he can come out of it but he will chop it past someone or put it through someone’s legs and that makes him so dangerous.
“He is a wholehearted player, he will chase balls down and run and I have been fortunate to train with him day in, day out, but also even more fortunate to play with the boy as well. He is a special talent.”
