Ashley Williams and Leon Britton have both said that they're not taking any notice of Jay Boothroyd's comments ahead of Saturday's big derby match at home to Cardiff City.
The Bluebirds striker has written off Swansea City's chances on the weekend, claiming we're not the team we were last season, even though we're doing better than we were this time last season.
The London-born striker said:
“Who’s in form? Swansea, really? I don’t know about that.
“Where are they in the league? Where are we in the league? Well...”
“To be honest, since the changes at Swansea, they’re not the side they were.
“They’ve lost their goalscorer Jason Scotland, they lost Jordi Gomez and they lost their manager – which I think is a massive factor and is showing it by him doing really well in the Premier League at Wigan.
“I don’t think they’re the side they were and it will be a totally different game than last year – we’re looking to go there and beat them.”
Ashley Williams responded and said the comments were foolish, he told BBC Sport:
'He's going to say whatever he thinks and obviously he's trying to do a bit of mind games, but we're not listening,'
'It was a bit foolish on his part. We are not going to bite to that or anything. We are just going to prepare as we would any other game.'
Midfielder Leon Britton also said:
'These things happen,'
'When the build-up to these kind of games come along, people say things and try and stir things up, but at the end of the day it's just mind games.
'The lads won't think of it as anything more than a throwaway comment.
'We won't use the comments made by opposition players, managers, supporters or anyone involved on the opposition teams.
'Things like that won't come into a team talk. We will just go about our business.'
