The Daily Mail commented, “The hands of the South East Asian goalkeeper are the season of failure of MU”. Before the start of the 2018/19 season, the top fog newspaper also appreciated Etheridge’s talent.

“Etheridge was born in England, but is an outstanding son of Filipino football at the moment. He’s even more special when he’s the first Southeast Asian in the Premier League, ”Daily Mail wrote.

In 2017 summer transfer, Etheridge joins Cardiff in a free transfer from Walsall. After 2 years, the 29-year-old goalkeeper reached the pillar and was the most valuable player in Cardiff now. What Etheridge showed shows that it is a waste to get down to the First Division, so some clubs have considered recruiting him.

In addition, many decent Premier League clubs are ready to take Etheridge away from Cardiff.
