After only being able to make 22 league appearances for Manchester United in 5 seasons, the Brazilian defender Fabio da Silva was offloaded from the club in Old Trafford as he went on to join the newly relegated Cardiff City.
For the entirety of Cardiff City’s history it was their first time playing in the Premier League during the previous season as it was something that the club had never managed on accomplishing and this was huge milestone as they had the opportunity to play in the top tier English league, the Premier League.
Cardiff City struggled playing against some of the best teams that England has to offer which ultimately resulted with them taking the last spot of the Premier League as they got relegated.
Even with the disastrous debut season of Cardiff City as they played in the Premier League for the first time, Fabio da Silva revealed that all the players in the squad are hoping and aiming on earning a promotion spot in the Championship League and eventually make a return to the Premier League.
“I believe in the plan they have for our future here. Everyone in the team wants us to bounce back and I really hope we will bounce back this season. Every game I have to impress the manager and work hard every day because that’s what pre-season is about, working hard to be fit for the season.” Da Silva said.
Fabio da Silva could never really make an impact in Old Trafford at Manchester United which is why he was eventually released from the club and Cardiff City signed him. Now the Brazilian player has the chance to make a name for himself in a club where his chances of getting into the first time are guaranteed.
