Former Coventry City forward John Hartson has said that Cardiff City need Craig Bellamy.
Hartson played with Bellamy at City and at Celtic and Hartson, who was been working for the BBC during the Confederations Cup said to the BBC; "He will be massive for Malky Mackay next season
"Craig's got great experience of the Premier League. He's got real quality
"I'm sure Craig will want to play every week - I know what the boy is like. But I think Malky Mackay will have to put the reins on him at times and hold him back slightly."
"I'm working now with Craig with the national team alongside [Wales manager] Chris Coleman and he's a great influence around the place.
"He will be able to help those young players who have never played at this level before.
"Craig's obviously had a wonderful career at West Ham, City and Liverpool. He's vastly experienced.
"I'm sure Craig will want to play every week - I know what the boy is like. But I think Malky will have to put the reins on him at times and hold him back slightly.
"He's the other side of 33 now and you wouldn't expect him to play every single game, but he's in great condition and looks after himself."
