Fate brings Brayford home

27 January 2015

Cult hero John Brayford says the biggest motivation in his career will always be memories over money.

Speaking after penning a three-and-a-year contract with the Blades on Saturday after United agreed an undisclosed fee with Championship outfit Cardiff City for his services, Brayford says he feels part of something very special at Bramall Lane and insists money comes secondary to being happy and hopefully successful in the future.

Brayford who also said he felt 'fate' would bring him back to South Yorkshire, remarked: "People talk about footballers signing at clubs for the money, but there is more to being a footballer than making a few extra quid.

"For me I want to be able to look back on my career and be able to watch, read and remember all the good times, all the moments that can never be replicated once you have retired.

"It is common knowledge that I have moved here for less money, but the Club has still invested an awful lot me and for that I am grateful and determined to make it worth their well.

"The aim is to get back to the Championship as soon as possible, hopefully this season and beyond that who knows, but I wouldn't have come here if I didn't think we were going to be successful.

"Something told me when I left at the end of last season that I would be back, maybe not this quick, but obviously it is fate that it has happened now."
