Etien Velikonja: Disappointed at a lack of opportunities at Cardiff

Etien Velikonja: Disappointed at a lack of opportunities at Cardiff

The Slovenian striker only linked up with the Bluebirds last summer, but has grown disillusioned with life in South Wales after just 12 months.

An inability to force his way into Malky Mackay's plans has left him kicking his heels on the sidelines.

Promotion to the Premier League is unlikely to have helped his cause, with competition for places having increased.

Velikonja concedes that it is now time for him to look for a fresh start, and he hopes Cardiff will be understanding of his situation and make themselves open to any further offers.

He told Nogomania: "I want to move somewhere where I will be able to play, as I surely won't get any chances at Cardiff.

"I had an offer from Portugal, but the club said no. I don't know why.

"I also don't know why I'm not playing at all. I don't believe the problem is me. I would really like to play. To get a chance at least."

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
