Cardiff City boss Mick McCarthy has admitted that Robert Glatzel is up for sale this summer after a tough period with the Welsh club.
The forward was brought from Heidenheim in a deal that was worth around £5.5m, making him a pretty expensive outlay for the Bluebirds. And, his time at the club didn’t go to plan, although some will argue that the club didn’t set up to get the best out of the player.
Glatzel was loaned out to Mainz in the winter window and he is playing his part as they look to survive in the Championship.
Whether they choose to sign the forward permanently or not, it appears as though Glatzel doesn’t have a future under McCarthy, as the boss bluntly revealed ‘he’s not for me’ when quizzed about the player by Wales Online.
Do Cardiff City and Swansea City have these 10 things in common?
The decision to move Glatzel on won’t surprise Cardiff fans, but it’s a call that divided opinion. Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter…
Another player who probably massively regrets joining us

With the style of football we play can you blame him

People’ll say we didn’t play to his strengths, but he doesn’t suit us at all so it’s best if he goes and we spend the money more efficiently

Awfully disapppointing outcome. Always hoped for the very best for him and that will not change – for whatever reason it hasn't really clicked and let's hope both parties can go on to better times. Nice bloke. Let's hope we can recoup a chunk of the hefty price tag that was paid.
