I’m not a villain, says Cardiff owner Tan

Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan has claimed that he is not the ‘villain’ that he has been portrayed as in the media, according to BBC Sport.

The 62-year-old Malaysian businessman, who has already upset the club’s fans by changing the team colours and sacking manager Malky Mackay, has said that those who oppose him should ‘apologise’.


“One day we are a hero, another day we are a zero,” said Tan. “Without me, Cardiff would have gone bust. Because of my investment, we got promoted.”


Tan bought the Welsh club in 2010 and has claimed that he will not leave the club unless the supporters drive him out amid his belief that he has the backing of 90% of Cardiff fans.


Since taking over the club, Tan has made several controversial decisions but believes his involvement in the team’s affairs will set the club straight.


“I am now more involved and under my leadership the club will be in good shape,” said Tan.


“Some of my family members really want me to leave. They think it's not worth it. They think no-one is grateful. But you have to be patient, accept the criticism and sometimes the insults.”


The Welsh club owner also stated that he felt the press was unfair in their portrayal of him as a James Bond villain with his dark glasses and gloves and went as far to say that the British press were ‘racist’.


“The British press is unfair... maybe because we didn't tell our side of the story that well. When the time is right, I will tell my story. Sometimes the British press is maybe a little bit racist,” added Tan.
