Hammers boss hopes striker will stay at Upton Park

West Ham manager Gianfranco Zola does not know if Craig Bellamy has played his last game for the club. The Hammers boss omitted Bellamy from his 18-man squad for Sunday's Premier League clash with Fulham, increasing speculation the Wales captain is heading for the Upton Park exit. Reports on Saturday suggested Bellamy had gone on strike after storming away from the club's training ground following West Ham's decision to turn down his recent request to join Tottenham. Zola insists Bellamy - who is also a target of Manchester City - was only left out against Fulham because he did not train on Saturday, but the Italian confesses he is uncertain regarding the striker's future. "He is not the 18 because he did not train yesterday, so I thought it was better not to select him for the game," Zola told Sky Sports ahead of the meeting with Fulham. "Whether he has played his last game, I don't know. Hopefully not, but we will see. "At the moment it is best to focus on the most important thing, which is today's game."
