Watch Craig Bellamy referee as Burnley are denied their first win of the season and fans joke that he ‘still has his temper’

FANS joked that Craig Bellamy was “still angry” after he became angry with the officials following Burnley’s 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest.

The former Liverpool and Newcastle star is Vincent Kompany’s assistant at Turf Moor and took to the pitch to protest on the Belgian’s behalf.

Berge’s first touch was ruled to hit his arm as he ran through and squared the ball for Lyle Foster.

Remarkably, there was no objection from the Forest players to the goal being disallowed after Foster converted.

Foster finally let his frustration get the best of him when he was sent off in the 94th minute for elbowing Ryan Yates.

After the final whistle, Bellamy entered the pitch to discuss Burnley’s disallowed goal with Jones.

The assistant coach’s intervention came after Berge himself had blamed the referee and tried to explain to him that his arm was in a natural position in the run-up to the goal.

Fans on Twitter were quick to point out that Bellamy had lost none of the passion he showed during his playing days.

One fan said: “Still temperamental… Right to be upset about the handball call though!”


Another wrote: “He was always vocal.”

A third tweeted: “Don’t blame him.”

And a fourth wrote: “Understandably angry. It’s hard there.”

The 1-1 draw means champions Burnley are still unable to secure a Premier League victory after four Premier League games.

They are in second-to-last place in the table with just one point.
