Cardiff City

Fans deserve survival – Gunnarsson

26th February 2019, 13:12 by Neil Foster

Aron Gunnarsson hopes the spirit and fight in the Cardiff camp can help avoid relegation to reward the club’s loyal fans.

The Bluebirds are embroiled in a relegation dogfight and sit just one point and one place above the bottom three with 11 games to go.

They have also had to deal with the tragedy surrounding Emiliano Sala and it has been a difficult few weeks for everyone connected with the South Wales outfit.

Manager Neil Warnock has continued to back his men and feels they can stay up and now midfielder Gunnarsson has echoed those thoughts, stressing that the togetherness of the players will help in their battle against the drop.

"This squad is experienced," he told the club’s official website. "They may not be experienced in this league but they are in the football world. We know what’s needed to get results and hopefully that will give us hope.

"The character is huge and the whole squad are putting all their effort in. It gives you hope, because this is a difficult league and staying in it would mean everything for us players and everyone around the club. The fans deserve to stay in this league too."

Cardiff entertain Everton on Tuesday evening and Iceland international Gunnarsson admits it will be far from easy to get the right result.

"We’re coming into a difficult game against a strong Everton team, who you always know have quality, even if they haven’t been playing their best football of late," he added.
