Cardiff manager Russell Slade has hit out at his predecessor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer by saying that the squad lacked any kind of coherence and planning.
He pointed out to the fact that the Championship outfit signed as many as 30 players at one point. This led to a bloated squad, and Slade believes that the team is paying the price for it right now. Slade has been able to benefit from some of those signings like Federico Macheda, who has been a regular first-team player. Most of them, however, are expected to be shipped away in the next few transfer windows.
Cardiff City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stated that he is extremely happy with the way his team have started the new Championship season. Cardiff were relegated from the Premier League last season after finishing bottom of the table. However, subsequent strengthening during the transfer window has listed them as one of the favourites to get promoted straight back up. Some key players like Fabio Da Silva and Federico Macheda have been signed during this period. They have contributed to Cardiff’s unbeaten start to the new season.
The manager of the Brazilian national football team, Luiz Felipe Scolari, has said that he doesn’t care about what the critics are saying about his team.
The Brazilians have not lost a single match in the ongoing FIFA World Cup and have made their way into the semi final round of the tournament, but, still, there are some people who are not happy with their performance.
Those critics reckon that the hosts have been a bit lucky at times and they might be found wanting against stronger opponents in the remaining two rounds.
The Red Devils are close to securing the services of the young left back Luke Shaw who has been a part of Southampton FC since the last couple of years.
Shaw is only 18 years of age at the moment, but, the pundits in England are rating him very highly.
Cardiff City suffered after ending the Premier League season in the last spot and now has to get ready to play in the upcoming campaign battling it out in the Championship League.
Fabio Da Silva stayed at Old Trafford for 5 seasons but after failing to make any kind of impact with the team, he was transferred to Cardiff City on January 29 but even though the club has is experiencing relegation troubles, the former Manchester United player is ready to help the club get back into the Premier League.
Manchester United defender Fabio Da Silva has revealed that he is now looking into the possibility of staying at Cardiff beyond the end of his loan spell.
He moved to the bluebirds on a loan deal from United till the end of the season. He may have been playing with the relegation threatened outfit only since January, but the 23-year-old has already become a fan’s favourite due to his endeavour on the pitch. He has also stated that he is very much looking forward to keeping the club in the Premier league, as they fight against the odds to stay in the division.
Fabio Da Silva has stated that the Cardiff city players should show more fight in order to get themselves out of relegation trouble.
The club started the game against Liverpool during the weekend extremely well. They managed to take the lead twice the encounter, but ended up losing the match 6-3. This result not only dampen their spirits, but also the possibility of getting out of the relegation zone. They are now three points adrift of safety with only nine matches remaining in the season.
The Bundesliga club Freiburg might get Fabio da Silva on loan from Manchester United until the end of the season. Discussions have taken place and David Moyes is ready to let the left-back leave. The United manager is not worries as he has Alexander Büttner as cover for Patrice Evra in the position.
The fact that Moyes is willing to let Fabio leave could also mean that there are still hopes that there will be a temporary move for Fábio Coentrão, the Real Madrid left-back, even with resistance from the Spanish club.
Cardiff City received news concerning their target of Manchester United, Fabio da Silva as the agent of the player Cassiano Pereira, said that he has not heard about his client leaving Manchester United and for the time being he will be staying in his current club.
"I don't know anything about these stories. I think they are just journalistic speculation. Today, I say that will remain in Manchester until the end of the season, but in summer it is very likely that they can leave." Pereira stated.
Since the start of the season Manchester United have been wobbling and not looking as the same squad of last season that only lost 5 matches during the entire season.
David Moyes still has not found the magical formation and combination of players that can stop the team from dropping points.
Southampton and Cardiff City all managed to play rescue 1 point as they both battled it off against Manchester United and coming out with a draw which is a good result for both Cardiff and Southampton but the team guided by Moyes was expecting to do much more damage.
