Souness has the obligation to use his authority

Craig Bellamy refused to play out of position.

Graeme Souness is correct 100% is using his authority; and it is his to use.

Bellamy’s behavior demonstrates a problem with authority. Remember the substitution reaction on camera recently? Look at the regular responses to tackles when it doesn’t go his way.

Don’t get me wrong, Bellamy is a good player with potential; he has tenacity, strong shooting skills and a natural instinct for goal. He has a similar personality to Joe Cole where they want to do what they want to do in an environment where they don’t have such a luxury. Cole learned this lesson, and has actually improved as a team player, showing he is learning how to better manage himself. Bellamy would also improve.

Mourinho, Ferguson, Moyes et al, have and would do the same thing, so should Souness.
