Bellamy: Promotion is 'best' moment of career

Craig Bellamy, who captained Cardiff City last night as they drew 0-0 with Charlton, said securing promotion to the Premier League his hometown club was his "best" achievement in football.

The Wales international and former Liverpool and Manchester City forward said, when the full-time whistle went, he dropped to his knees with exhaustion and "utter relief".

"I'm just so grateful to have played a small part at this club in such a memorable stage" [in Cardiff's history], he said.

Cardiff could cash in on success

Cardiff City’s promotion to the Premiership is fantastic news. It is the result of much hard work and dedication by the team, and is well deserved.

Swansea City’s first season in the Premiership brought an estimated £58m into Wales, creating around 420 new jobs, and it is essential that Cardiff starts making the most of this opportunity right from the off.

Cardiff City's Malaysian owner Vincent Tan described himself as "very happy" after the club secured promotion to the Premier League.

"This is great, I am very happy", he told Sky Sports News.

"Malky [Mackay] is a fantastic manager. We have a great working relationship."

Tan controversially decided to change the colour of the club's shirts from blue to red last summer.

It was designed to make Cardiff more marketable in Asia - but red is also a lucky colour in China.

"Lucky red, you know, lucky red", Tan added.
