Savage: 'Robbo is just the ticket for Cardiff'

Last updated : 11 July 2003 By Michael Morris
"Cardiff have got a real diamond in Robbo, he's the fittest and most committed professional I know.

"Robbo is just the ticket for Cardiff and their Premiership ambitious. He's perfect for such a go-ahead club, and I know he will push every player around him to the limit - he's a winner.

"Robbo has been in the Premiership for several seasons, and he is just the right type of guy that can push Cardiff to the next level, but he can't do it himself.

"If Cardiff could get another three or four players of Robinsons' pedigree, they would have a real good shout at the Premiership this season.

"I can't speak too highly of him, his work-rate is second to none, and his skill level has always been over-shadowed, and not given the credit it deserves, probably because of the ground he covers.

"I feel, that if Cardiff can consolidate this season, and then go for it next term, with a few additions that would be superb for Welsh football generally.

"With Robbo on board at Ninian Park he will make Cardiff City tick at First Division level and the Bluebirds have also got a player who will run through a wall for you on the football field."

I think he likes him.
