Geordie Boy Longs For Return!

Geordie Boy Longs For Return!



22-year-old Michael Chopra joined Cardiff City in a £500,000 deal in the summer and the Welsh fans have taken him to their hearts.

But the Geordie boy has given them a warning - despite the Bluebirds sitting at the top of the league and the Premiership looking a strong possibility - he wants to play for Newcastle again!

Chopra: 'I'm happy at Cardiff and I want to be part of a team which earns promotion and run out at the new stadium when it's ready. One day, though, I would love to play for Newcastle United again. That would be my dream.

'I look at myself. I'm a Cardiff City player and happy to be part of what is happening here in South Wales. But I had to leave the club I supported as a boy just to get a regular game.

'I will do everything I can to help City earn promotion to the Premiership and I'll be proud if I contribute to that. But, eventually, I'd love to play at St James' Park again.'

Chopra will long be remembered for the goal that helped beat the Mackems at the Stadium of Light.

Chopra was being wasted at The Barcodes. He needed to get first team football some where. But I am suprised that you only sold him for £500,000, I would have thought that he was worth moe then that. When Cardiff get promoted, and they play Newcastle, you will all be asking 'Why did we sell Chopra???????'

Actually, he makes a valid enough point. I'd have much rather seen him go out on loan again; half a million is pocket change.
