‘Can’t believe that’ – Plenty of Cardiff City fans react to significant player decisions

Published

on

Cardiff City have announced that five senior players, including Sol Bamba, Junior Hoilett and Joe Bennett will leave the club this summer.

The trio are all out of contract in the Welsh capital this summer, and in their annual released and retained list, the Bluebirds have confirmed that they are among those who will not be offered new deals to remain at the club.

Club captain Bamba joined Cardiff from Leeds in 2016, and went on to make 118 appearances and score ten goals for the club, with his final appearances for the Bluebirds on the final day of last season marking his return after several months out battling cancer.

Hoilett also joined the club in 2016, scoring 25 goals in 184 appearances in a Cardiff shirt, while Bennett, who was another 2016 recruit, played 177 games and scored five goals for the Bluebirds.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Joe Day – who made just two Cardiff appearances after joining from Newport in 2019 – and midfielder Jonny Williams – who only joined the club from Charlton this January, making nine appearances – have also been released following the end of their contracts.

Perhaps not surprisingly, plenty of Cardiff fans were keen to have their say on news of those departures, with the decision regarding Bamba understandably a particular talking point.

Here, we take a look at what some of those supporters had to say.
