And Bellamy said: 'The great thing about Luis is that he has such a big heart.
'He is a really terrific player and the one thing I've seen over and over again is that he is able to create something out of absolutely nothing.
'You sometimes think he is going down a dead end but then he will show that spark of creativity that change things completely.
'He will come up with a little flick or knock the ball through an opponent's legs and that's what makes him so dangerous.
'He is a special talent and I feel fortunate to have trained and played with him.'
