Cardiff City

Dalman backs Bluebirds to beat the drop

6th February 2019, 14:33 by Gareth Freeman

Chairman Mehmet Dalman believes the Cardiff City squad have the quality to avoid relegation despite a "frustrating" transfer window.

The January window was marked by tragedy after the plane containing record-buy Emiliano Sala disappeared over the English Channel.

The club did manage to bring in Oumar Niasse and Leandro Bacuna in the winter window, but Dalman has revealed Cardiff went after other targets "aggressively" and had "so many [deals] just about over the line, yet for one reason or another weren't able to do it".

Dalman is well aware Cardiff face a real battle to avoid relegation although he also has faith in manager Neil Warnock and the squad.

"We accept that [Cardiff have a battle on their hands], but there's no reason why we cannot get out of this if we produce the type of performances seen at Arsenal and against Bournemouth," he said, as reported by Wales Online.

"I have belief in this team, belief in Neil and his coaches Ian Blackwell and Ronnie Jepson. And, let's remember, we have signed two in Niasse and Bacuna, newcomers who can make their own mark in different ways."
