MATT DEAL WASN’T MY DECISION!
MATTHEW Connolly’s loan move to Watford raised a few eyebrows and Cardiff boss Russell Slade admits the departure wasn’t a footballing decision.
Connolly has started 22 games for Cardiff this term, including five in the last month, but is now a Hornets player until the end of the season.
And while Slade claims the defender will return to the club, he admits the temporary exit was out of his hands.
“He’ll come back, he’s still a Cardiff City player,” said Slade. “It’s not for a footballing reason he’s gone.
“We don’t look like we are going to make the play-offs and it also looks like we are not going to get relegated, so a business decision was made for the football club.
“He knows the reasons for the move to be granted.”
