Craig Bellamy has backed Mark Hughes to be a success at Stoke City.

The Wales international worked with the former Manchester United striker at both international and club level, with Bellamy thriving under Hughes’ tutelage at Blackburn Rovers.

The 49-year-old’s spell at Ewood Park has been the highlight of his managerial career after difficult reigns at Manchester City, Fulham and most recently Queens Park Rangers.

But Cardiff City striker Bellamy, 33, reckons Hughes and Stoke are a good fit after the new manager’s compatriot Tony Pulis left the Potters last month.

“He has gone into an established Premier League club who have been left in a great position by Tony Pulis because of the work he has done has been remarkable,” the Cardiff City striker told Sky Sports News.

“The intensity, the work rate at Stoke and the atmosphere generated will suit Mark Hughes’s football. The professionalism he has, he will be a great asset to Stoke.”

Bellamy scored 17 goals in 32 appearances during a one-season spell with Hughes at Rovers before joining Liverpool for the first time in 2006. raig
