Bluebirds try out Libyan skipper

Cardiff have given a trial to Libya captain and midfielder Tarek El Taib. If nothing else, this signing would give an opportunity to resurrect the popular 1980s chant: "Gadaffi, Gadaffi, Gadaffi is a Taffy."

The 29-year-old, who led his country at this year's Africa Nations Cup
joined Gaziantepspor for US$ 1.2 million in 2004, but has left the Turkish side.

This video clip shows him in action, though unfortunately, at no stage does he "do the Ayatollah". And I'm now sure how kindly he'd take to requests.

"Gadaffi, Gadaffi, Gadaffi is a Taffy."

That has got to be the best chant ever.

Has he played in any of the pre-season games? Is he likely to sign?
