Ridsdale: Fowler lured by title challenge

Published Add your comment

Cardiff chairman Peter Ridsdale believes the chance to win the Coca-Cola Championship title lured striker Robbie Fowler to Ninian Park.

The 32-year-old former England hitman agreed a move to the Welsh club last week after turning down the chance to resume his career in Australia.

Ridsdale told BBC Radio Five Live´s Sportsweek programme: "We have got a new stadium starting and I think Robbie was attracted to the opportunity hopefully to win a medal going back up into the Premier League rather than perhaps swap Liverpool for a team who might struggle up there in the Premier League."
