Peter Odemwingie ready to start afresh with 'stronger' Cardiff

Published Add your comment

Peter Odemwingie is ready to start "afresh" after his deadline day move from West Brom to Cardiff City, reports Sky Sports News,

The striker endured a torrid time at West Brom last year, after a series of deadline day antics over a move to QPR saw his career stall.

His on-off move last January somewhat consigned him to never play for the Baggies again, but he is grateful for a new chance at his new club.

"The Cardiff fans have been great. People I've met have welcomed me and I know the great atmosphere they create," he told a press conference in Cardiff.

"There was interest from West Ham, Fulham, Stoke and Swansea but I chose Cardiff as it was the best place for my family and I."

"I told my wife yesterday that what I see in this squad is stronger than West Brom."

Odemwingie admits both parties were to blame for his demise at West Brom, but he is just happy to start all over again and rediscover his form for Cardiff.

"I'm pleased to be here and disappointed things didn't work at West Brom but I still love the fans just not the people involved," he said.

"I will take my responsibility but one side was claiming to be perfect. I think mistakes were made on their side too.

"I feel like I'm starting over now. Every goal or even assist for me now for Cardiff will mean everything to me.

"It doesn't surprise me the success they've had under Malky Mackay, I've really enjoyed his training so far.

"I am starting from zero. Every performance I want to score. The earlier I get a goal the better after not scoring for six months."
