FC Copenhagen signing Cornelius takes swipe at Cardiff owner Tan

FC Copenhagen striker Andreas Cornelius has taken a swipe at Cardiff City chairman Vincent Tan.

The Dane was sold back to FCK last week after six months at the CCS.

Former manager Malky Mackay had signed the 6ft 4in Scandinavian but once Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had taken over Cornelius' days appeared numbered.

A source close to the controversial Bluebirds owner said shortly after Solskjaer had been appointed : "Mackay was instructed to go out and buy a Bentley.

"He got the funds to get some top quality international players but Mr Tan feels Mackay bought a Toyota instead."

In response to those frank words, Cornelius, 20, said: " It just shows that he does not understand football, you can't compare footballers with cars.

"You don't know what you get in the same way as when you buy a car.

"There are many other factors that come into play, so you can't just compare it that way."

"I've never met him, so it must be for his own good."
