Andreas Cornelius: Ready for the challenge of the Premier League

Andreas Cornelius: Ready for the challenge of the Premier League

Denmark international Cornelius joined the club at the start of the month after a big-money deal, reported to be worth around £7.5million, was agreed with FC Copenhagen.

He signed a five-year deal and was officially presented to the media on Thursday, when he insisted he would relish the challenge of trying to justify his price tag.

Having been prolific in his home nation's Superliga last season, the 20-year-old is confident that he can prosper in English football.

"It's been easy to settle in. Everyone is very friendly at Cardiff," said Cornelius.

"I'm very excited to move here. This is a great opportunity. There is a great squad to work with and I'm looking forward to it.

"It was a bit of a surprise. I did not know Copenhagen were going to let me go. It all went quickly. But I just felt that it was the right decision to make.

"I see the price paid as a motivation for me. If Cardiff want to pay that amount of money for me then I must be good and they must believe that I'm good.

"In Denmark the Premier League matches are shown on TV and it is where players want to play. It is the league with the most viewers.

"It might be a bit more difficult to score goals here, but as long as I am in a good team and I can improve all the time then I really think it will work out."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
