Cardiff Go For Versatile Over Depth

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones has confirmed his intention to use new recruit Tony Capaldi as a left-back next season.

Jones also revealed his tendency to go for versatile players who can adapt to the teams needs. He currently has McNaughton (either full back or emergency centre-half), Joe Ledley (anywhere on the left or centre-midfield), Parry (either flank) and now Capaldi (left back or left midfield) who offer alternative options and allow the club to operate from a small squad.



'We needed depth in the left-back position and I see his best position as a defender.'


'This then gives us options with Joe who has had a superb season. We have some real quality and depth now in the full-back position with Kevin McNaughton and Chris Gunter.'


'Tony can play in midfield, but I feel his best position is at left-back. It`s important when we have a small squad to bring in players who can contribute in more than one position.'




Many fans feel that Joe Ledley is less effective as a full back and will be happier seeing him challenge Whittingham and McPhail in midfield. Tony Capaldi and Kevin McNaughton will compete for the left-back slot.

Ledley definately suffered from being switched about, no good for players not to know their position inside out
Bonesy
Highly useful to have versatility on the bench and during a game but need to keep one position regularly to cement it
