The Cardiff City defence was one of their strongest departments from last season as they leaked 51 goals and the real problem lied at the opposite end of the field.
The Bluebirds back four notched up 14 clean sheets and were barely beaten heavily after only allowing 3 goals past David Marshall in a single Championship game on 2 separate occasions.
The Welsh side finished in 8th position that led to Russell Slade being dismissed for not delivering their target of a top six finish.
However, nobody could question the commitment and consistent displays from the Bluebirds defence.
This will be the biggest year in Trollope’s career and after the European Championships are over with Wales, he will be knuckling down to make sure his side retain and bring in the right players for the new season.
The Cardiff boss will reflect on the side’s defensive performances over the summer, but from what he has witnessed so far, he will not be looking to change the back line enormously.
