    Re: Mendez Laing Contract Terminated

    "Cardiff City Football Club has, with immediate effect, terminated the contract of Nathaniel Mendez-Laing.

    The Club will not be making any further comment on the matter."

    And club stating no further comment to be made on the matter.

    A member of the first team has his contract terminated with a year remaining. I am sure fans will be pushing for clarity as to why.

    It had been noted that NML had binned his social media accounts in recent weeks. So one can only assume it's a personal matter.

    He's deleted his social media, and the club have known about it for a while. I wonder if it's a police matter?

    Re: Mendez Laing Contract Terminated

    The Beeb are saying it's a "breach of contract", not that it's much to go on.

    WTF think fans deserve a bit more than he's gone, no further comment. You haven't got to go into the exact details but surely can say it's a disciplinary issue, it's by mutual consent due to personal reasons, whatever.

    My prediction: He didn't want to play for us and went about it the wrong way.

    Yes, this clearly has been a possibility at least for some time. Also the fact that he hasn't been seen in pre-season.

    Not mutual consent according to WOL. Club decision.

    To be fair to the club, they seem to have a tight ship these days, I remember the old (original) carl updates were pretty spot on, the fact the first anyone is hearing of this is from a club statement is unusual in these times of social media.

    All our signings the last few years have been a surprise also.

    Why ? The club have acted decisively and quickly which is good. They have already taken steps to replace him. They wouldn't just tear up the contract of a senior first team player without good reason and therefore you have to believe that we will be better off without him.

    No one is saying its not the right decision by the club. It may or not be.

    But losing him weakens the squad.

    If this is just him forcing his way out then you'd have at least expected the club to try to sell him, as he'd be wirth a million or two to someone srely?

    I like him as a player and believe he adds value to our squad.
    Sounds like you believe it is good news then.

    Caught dealing is the new rumour on the tíinternet

    Re: Mendez Laing Contract Terminated

    Wow. Wasnít expecting that. Could be anything really. Iím sure itís been said ďpersonal reasonsĒ over the past months why he has missed pre season but to have a contract terminated suggests misconduct or even something criminal? I guess itíll come out in the wash. Such a shame as he was really coming along nicely.
