Cardiff Go For Versatile Over Depth

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

Highly useful to have versatility on the bench and during a game but need to keep one position regularly to cement it
