Cardiff City dealt major blow in attempt to offload defender



According to BBC Sport, Cardiff City defender Bruno Ecuele Manga could be out for the rest of the 2016/17 season.

Manga damaged knee ligaments during Gabon’s 0-0 draw with Cameroon in the African Cup of Nations and will have a scan when he returns to Cardiff.

This comes as a big blow for Cardiff City, who were planning on selling Bruno Manga in an attempt to generate funds for potential new arrivals.

However, the 28-year-old had returned to the starting XI and Neil Warnock was possibly considering keeping him beyond January so this news would be a blow to his defensive plans either way.

Manga’s contract is due to expire in the summer and Warnock does not know whether this injury news will affect his activity in the January window.

Speaking to BBC Wales Sport, he said:

“We need to know Monday because of deadline day, but I fear the worst.”

Cardiff fans – is this a big blow? Were you expecting Manga to play a role during the rest of this season? Let us know in the comments below…
