NO POINT TO PROVE FOR BEN TURNER UPON CARDIFF RETURN

20 January 2017

BEN Turner played over 100 games for Cardiff City during his five years with the club from 2011-2016 in the Championship and the Premier League.

Turner will be best known for his dramatic equaliser against Liverpool in the League Cup final at Wembley Stadium. The central defender suffered with injuries towards the end of his Cardiff career but he doesn’t feel as though he’s got a point to prove to the Welsh club.

He said: “It will be nice to go back, but I don’t feel like I’ve got a point to prove.” He added: “I enjoyed my time there and felt like I was part of probably one of the best runs the club has ever had and during the only period when they got the Premier League, I was luckily enough to be involved in that.

“The good thing for Cardiff is that they had them times, big games at Wembley year after year for a few years, play-offs, won the league, got to the Premier League.

“It was a massive journey, changing the colour of the kit and all the rest of it. To be honest it was chaotic at times but luckily enough they are back to where they are started, they are no lower than the Championship.

“They are in the Championship so they can build and go again and hopefully at some point they do.”

We are over half way through the season and there are 20 games remaining in the Sky Bet Championship, as Ben Turner looks back on a positive 26 games despite a run of one win in eight for the Albion.

Turner said: “We’ve got 20 games left and so far so good, we have to be positive.

“I know the recent run of results isn’t what we wanted but we’re in a position where we can stay in this league and to stay in this league is more than an achievement than winning the league below last season.

“We’re the smallest team in the league by an absolute mile. Everyone knows that if we stay up that us us winning our league so we’re not going to change our attitude towards that.

“We want to stay up and that’s what we’re going to try and do.”
