As Cardiff await the visit of Manchester United this weekend, striker Fraizer Campbell says he has not regrets about leaving them.

The former Sunderland hitman had 12 years at Old Trafford before moving on to the north east in 2009, a decision which he admits was not easy.

Campbell joined Cardiff almost a year ago but is looking ahead to facing his former club this weekend and has no regrets about leaving them to further his career.

"It was difficult to leave United. I'd been there since I was 10," Campbell said in the Daily Star Sunday.

"But I wanted to be playing. I have no regrets, though, because you have to be realistic.

"Ruud van Nistelrooy, Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney were in front of me.

"Then they brought in Carlos Tevez. I had to be worth £25million to be playing in that team!

"I had a great time there. I didn't play many games but it was nice to be part of the club."
