Ex-Man Utd fullback Fabio doesn't regret Cardiff move

Fabio da Silva has no regrets over his move to Cardiff City.

The former Manchester United fullback stressed manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's presence at Cardiff was key.

"It was a big change to what I've been used to because I had worked with Sir Alex Ferguson for more or less the entire time I'd been in the UK," he explained to WalesOnline.

"But I had worked with Ole and his coaches before, at United, and know him well.

"In some ways those factors meant it was more familiar in Cardiff than working at Manchester United with the new manager (David Moyes) taking charge.

"When I first arrived at Manchester United from Brazil I started training with Ole. For the last six months of his playing career I was working with him. I know his way and how he thinks about football. I promised the manager I would give this club everything I have in my body to help us out of the relegation battle.

"Even if I don't play every week, I train hard and make sure I am ready.

"I don't think I have to prove to anybody what I can do.

"I just have to prove things to myself.

"This is a great opportunity and I am enjoying the challenge."
