Former Cardiff City striker Jay Bothroyd Tweets on change back to blue kit

The former striker is pleased to see Cardiff have returned to blue.

Jay Bothroyd was certainly a hero during his spell with Cardiff City. The former Arsenal youngster signed for The Bluebirds in 2008 for £350,000 from Wolves - Cardiff beating off competition from Reading and Hull for his signature.

He ended up banging in the goals for the Welsh club. When he left for QPR in 2011 he had scored 45 goals in 133 games for Cardiff and earned his one and only England cap under Fabio Capello.

So Cardiff City still holds a very big part of his heart. The striker therefore was one of many people who was very pleased to hear that Vincent Tan had performed a U-turn in regards to the club's home kit colour.

The controversial chairman confirmed that from this weekend Cardiff will be wearing blue as their home kit once again, after Tan changed it to red back in 2012 - amid mass fan protest.

And Bothroyd shared his joy with the decision on his official Twitter account today, even suggesting he might have played a role in the change...

We imagine most Cardiff fans feel the same way.
