Cardiff City sack manager Malky Mackay

Cardiff City have sacked manager Malky Mackay, according to BBC Sport.

Mackay was finally dismissed after weeks of media speculation after club owner Vincent Tan sent an email to the Scot telling him to either resign or be sacked.


The former Watford boss refused to walk out on the club, stating that he was proud to be Cardiff manager and took the time to praise the fans for their continued support.


Those fans have been extremely vocal in their support for their now former manager, but Mackay also attracted much support from colleagues and pundits who stated their disbelief at the treatment of the 41-year-old.


Chairman Mehmet Dalman was keen to instigate a peace between Mackay and Tan, and had looked to have been successful after the manager led his team out against Liverpool and Southampton before finally being given the axe.


Both games resulted in defeats for the Welshmen, and Tan issued a statement on Friday stating his “regret” that the situation became so untenable.


The Malaysian billionaire said: “Far too much dirty linen has been exposed to the public gaze but, I stress, not by me.


“There has been a good deal of publicity generated by, and about, Mr Malky Mackay for the last few months. I have deliberately not responded to this, hoping that the club can be judged on its football rather than personalised arguments about who said what to whom.


“I have, however, regretfully concluded that it is no longer fair to the club, its players, its fans and the public more generally for this uncomfortable state of affairs to continue.


“Cardiff City Football Club means far too much to us all for it to be distracted by this.”


Things had looked rocky at the Cardiff City Stadium since the removal of Mackay’s right hand man Iain Moody back in October, and while Moody has since taken a role at Crystal Palace the writing was thought to be on the wall for Mackay, who at one point was at 1/10 to be the next Premier League manager to depart his club – an accolade that eventually went to Ian Holloway at, ironically, Crystal Palace.
