Andreas Cornelius

By Glen Williams

Thursday 21st May 2020

Andreas Cornelius’ tale is one of unfulfilled promise, poor timing and, thankfully, a happier ending once he left the Welsh capital.

It was the beginning of the Bluebirds’ striker crisis. Chopra and Bothroyd had both left two years before and City were desperately searching for a new marksman to carry the torch.

A series of hit-and-miss frontmen followed the fabled Chopra-Bothroyd axis, but, having forked out a club-record £8m for Copenhagen prodigy Cornelius, City fans were ravenous with anticipation when the Dane signed on the dotted line in June 2013.

But he will forever be bundled into the list of strikers who never made the grade at Cardiff City.

Whether that is down to player, mismanagement or the weighty expectation borne from a lofty price tag, we will likely never know. But everyone will certainly have their own opinion.

Is he Cardiff's worst-ever signing? Well, let’s first and foremost caveat that by saying the weighty expectation was not the player's fault.

He didn’t ask to be bought for £8m and he was just a kid when City waved £45,000 a week in front of his face.

But there is no denying that zero goals in 11 appearances is a dreadful return for any forward... which leads us nicely on to our final signing.
