Watch Craig Bellamy Furious at Referee as Burnley Denied First Win of Season and Fans Joke He ‘Still Has the Temper’

, Watch Craig Bellamy Furious at Referee as Burnley Denied First Win of Season and Fans Joke He ‘Still Has the Temper’

Fans teased that former football star Craig Bellamy "still has a temper" after he expressed his anger towards officials following Burnley's 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest.

Bellamy Challenges Referee's Decision

Bellamy, who is now assistant to Vincent Kompany at Turf Moor, took to the pitch to protest on behalf of the Belgian. He argued that Berge's arm was in a natural position when his first touch was judged to have hit his arm as he ran through and squared the ball for Lyle Foster.

Interestingly, there was no appeal from the Forest players for the goal to be ruled out after Foster converted.

Player Frustration: Foster Sent Off

Frustration got the better of Foster, who was sent off for elbowing Ryan Yates in the 94th minute.

Bellamy Joins the Debate

After the final whistle, Bellamy joined the pitch in a bid to discuss Burnley's disallowed goal with Jones, the referee. Berge himself was already remonstrating with the referee, explaining that his arm was in a natural position in the lead up to the goal.

Fans React on Twitter

Fans took to Twitter to comment on Bellamy's passionate display. One fan wrote, "Still has the temper… Right to be pissed off about the handball call though!" Another added, "He's always been vocal."

Another fan simply said, "Don't blame him," while a fourth supporter said, "Understandably fuming. Hard done by there."
