Manchester United defender Fabio Da Silva, who is on loan at Cardiff till the end of the season, says that he is concerned by the fact that the team are conceding a lot of goals. Cardiff are fighting against relegation after having come from the championship only in the summer. After sacking manager Malkay Mackay a few months ago, it looks like they will be unable to avoid relegation and stay in the Premier league next season. The club are still in the relegation zone with only just over five matches left in the season.
They could have got a result in most of the matches in recent times had it been for better defending. In the last five matches alone, they have conceded 14 goals. This alarming dip in form in defending is something of a worry for Fabio, whose performances with Cardiff will be assessed by Manchester United at the end of the season. Poor performance from Cardiff will reflect badly on Fabio, who is widely believed to have this opportunity as the last chance to establish himself at Old Trafford. The exit of Patrice Evra in the summer is widely expected to open the doors for a new left back.
If Fabio performs well at Cardiff, he could very well be playing along with his brother once again.
“We can’t continue to concede that many goals. We go to West Brom trying to stop that, it’s a massive, massive game. We’ve got the quality to stay up, you see it every day in training. We continue to work hard and fight to stay up. We take positives from our performances against Everton (a 2-1 away defeat) and Liverpool (a 6-3 home defeat). We need to continue that and get the points we deserve,” said the defender ahead of the West Brom match.
