But in a statement Anderlecht said Bellamy's mental health problems "have resurfaced again recently", and the former striker "took a very difficult, but absolutely necessary decision concerning his health" in opting to leave.Bellamy said his farewells to the dressing room after Anderlecht's 7-2 victory over Mechelen in the Belgian First.
