Solskjaer defends Cardiff flop Cornelius

Cardiff City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has defended Danish flop Andreas Cornelius.

Cornelius lasted just six months before being sold back to FC Copenhagen last month.

Solskjaer said: "Andreas is a young player who is going to have a good career.

"He realised he was not going to get his chance here and it was better to restart his career. He had a tough time but that's how football is sometimes.

"The player's transfer fee and wages are not his fault. If you get offered £10 or £1, what will you take? Of course he is not going to say no I am not worth £10 I am going to take £1. You can't blame him whatsoever."
