Mackay's Damning Verdict On Earnshaw Future

Cardiff City's unwanted striker Robert Earnshaw is back at the club, but has been given a firm assertation from manager Malky Mackay that his is not part of the first team plans and would be better served finding a new club.

Earnshaw had been on loan with Maccabi Tel Aviv, but the Israeli outfit are not looking to extend the loan deal and Earnshaw is returning to South Wales. He was a bit-part plauyer last season, and fell further down the pecking order with the arrivals of Bellamy, Velikonja, Helguson and Maynard. His future seemedelsewhere, and a loan deal was agreed.

Mackay told BBC Sport:

'I would imagine he will be looking to get games which is not something he is going to get'

'I'm pretty sure him and his agent will be working hard this month to get something moving for him. He will come back and he will be part of my group, but I imagine he will be trying to get out again.'

'It appears that the Israeli team are sending him back. I think he wanted to stay over there until the end of the season but it was not to be.'



This will be a saad end for Earnshaw - a Cardiff City hero in his first spell as a Bluebird. Whilst many feel he still has plenty to offer, it is pretty clear that isn't really at this club and it's hard to see how he would get any gametime at all.

A potential stumbling block on any move would be Earnshaw's significant wage packet. Few clubs could afford to pay his salary in full, so the most likely option is another loan deal whereby City continue to pay a proportion of Earnie's wage - as previously with loan deals for Jon Parkin.

Earnshaw is a model professional, and remained so all through last season in what must have been his most frustrating season of his career. A move away is surely in everyone's best interests and hopefully he can find a good club, where he can excel for the remainder of this season - and his career.
