Cardiff City

Paterson keen to cement regular spot for Cardiff

20th November 2018, 11:28 by Gareth Freeman

Cardiff midfielder Callum Paterson wants to cement a regular attacking role for both club and country.

Paterson has mostly been deployed as an attacking midfielder by Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock this season but has been used in other positions, having started as a striker in the Premier League against Tottenham.

The 24-year-old played primarily at right-back for former club Hearts and reverted to full-back for Scotland in their win over Albania last time out.

Paterson feels his versatility has not always worked in his favour and says he wants to fully establish himself in one position for both Cardiff and his country.

“I’m an attacking player. I love going forward and scoring goals. I got 10 goals last year and only started playing just before Christmas," he told the Daily Record.

“I’m not blowing my own trumpet but it shows I can get in the box and cause problems. That’s me scored three goals in four games in the Premier League.

“It’s massive for the manager to trust me and know I am capable of doing that.

“I had it mentioned a few times I am a Jack of all trades, master of none. It’s not great to hear, hopefully I can nail down a place in the future.

“I haven’t quite done it for Cardiff yet but I am getting there and I’d love to do it for Scotland as well. But I know when it comes to international football it’s sometimes a case of needs must.”
