New Cardiff boss to be given extensive January funds

Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan has promised extensive funds to the club’s next manager, having instructed chairman Mehmet Dalman to find a successor to Malky Mackay, writes BBC Sport.

Vincent Tan

The promise from Tan comes just weeks after he claimed that the club overspent by around 15m during the summer, where he funded the signings of players including Andreas Cornelius, John Brayford, Steven Caulker and Gary Medel.

Tan, who saved Cardiff from administration in 2011 also said that no money would be made available in January, after Mackay - sacked on Friday - expressed hope that there would be additions to the squad in the New Year.

Former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has won the Norwegian League twice as manager of Molde, is thought to Dalman’s first choice candidate to replace Mackay, but among the other names linked are former England boss Sven Goran Eriksson and Yilmaz Vural, who has managed more than 20 clubs in Turkey.

Meanwhile, Mackay, who leaves after a public falling out with Tan, is now among the favourites to become West Bromwich Albion’s new Head Coach.

I am Malaysian but I do not agree with the actions of Vincent Tan towards his treatment of a great manager like Malky Mackay. I hope that Malky Mackay and Cardiff City fans do not think that all Malaysians are like Tan. I am certainly on the side of Mackay. I just wonder if having too much money being a multi-billionaire makes one think that one can be all-powerful and ignore the feelings of others (for example Cardiff fans) and treat them with contempt? This is how some big powerful Malaysian billionaires and powerful politicians in Malaysia's "klepto-cracy" government treat their own citizens in Malaysia. Perhaps they think they can treat others outside their country in the same contemptuous manner? Hope Cardiff City fans will not let others walk over them lying down.
