Tony Capaldi eyes new start at Oxford United

Defender Tony Capaldi says he is looking forward to relaunching his career with Oxford United next season.

Capaldi, 29, who joined United from Morecambe earlier in May, has not played since 22 March after calling the Shrimpers "rubbish" on Twitter.

"I didn't have my best season last season and I want to get my career back on track now," he told BBC Oxford.

"Last year didn't go as well as I would've liked but it's up to me to prove my worth and show what I can do."

The left-back, who has spent time at Hereford, Leeds United and Plymouth, found himself without a club last summer after leaving Cardiff.

But after trials with Crystal Palace, Hearts and Plymouth, he eventually settled at Morecambe on a short-term deal.

"I learnt from last year where I messed about all summer," said Capaldi.

"I had been looking for a money contract rather than a good footballing move.

"It just didn't work out for me, but I've now come to a good footballing club for myself and I just want to get my career on track and start from fresh.

"As soon as I spoke to [Oxford manager] Chris Wilder I wanted to get the move sorted out and I just want to get ready now for pre-season."
