Cardiff City Man Backtracks - Sensibly!

Cardiff City Man Backtracks - Sensibly!

Cardiff City striker Ross McCormack has predictably and sensibly distanced himself from comments in the Hull media where he complained about being 'priced out` of a move away from the Bluebirds. See HERE for details.

Ross released a statement via the CCFC official site stating he has been mis-represented and is not desperate for a move away from Cardiff City Stadium. The statement read:

"I don`t know where those quotes have been dug up from, I`m upset at these reports, but everyone knows the situation. I had a conversation with the chairman and said that if a Premier club came in for me, I`d like the chance to speak to them."

"There was no transfer request. It`s true that I haven`t started as many games as I would have liked pre-season, but I won`t run away."

"Everyone seems to think I don`t care about Cardiff and I want to leave, but that`s not the case."

"The fans here have been brilliant and it`s killing me that they are reacting as if I want to leave as soon as I can."

I do have some sympathy for McCormack in that he was consistently selected behind Michael Chopra last season even when the former Sunderland man was clearly unfit. Signs are that he looks set for more bench duty or to be employed as a wideman - a position McCormack is not keen on.

In fairness, there has been no indication that Rosco would not play, or would even be content to sit on the bench and his effort against Valencia as a substitute was as good as ever. However, his recent comments have smacked of arrogance and suggestions of toys being thrown from prams cannot be too far wide of the mark.

At least the official statement goes some way towards mending a relationship with the fans and management at Cardiff City and whilst his future is still in doubt - keeping such discussions in house is preferable to all.

Will you boo McCormack on Saturday? A poll is now open where you can leave your vote on the right hand side of this screen.

I think Cardiff wish to sell and are trying to hold out for as much as they can get. Will Ledley be going the same way in the same package??
