‘Shame it didn’t work out’ – Plenty of Cardiff City fans react as player’s departure is confirmed

Cardiff City have confirmed that striker Robert Glatzel has left the club on a permanent basis to join German second-tier side HSV Hamburg.

Glatzel joined Cardiff from Heidenheim in his native Germany back in the summer of 2019 for a reported £5.5million.

However, the striker failed to really settle in the Welsh capital, scoring just 11 goals in 58 appearances in all competitions for the Bluebirds, before spending the second-half of last season on loan with Bundesliga side Mainz.

The 27-year-old has now returned to Germany on a permanent basis, signing a three-year contract with Hamburg, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2024.

Are these 20 facts about Cardiff's five most expensive signings true or false?
