Solskjaer: I have final say on Cardiff signings


Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

Saturday 01 March 2014

Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that he is the man who decides which players the club should pursue and sign, rather than owner Vincent Tan, Sky Sports has reported.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Vincent Tan


Since the club was promoted to the Premier League at the end of last season, Tan has adopted a more hands-on approach as Cardiff owner, sacking head of recruitment Iain Moody in October, and then manager Malky Mackay in December after a highly publicised feud between the pair.


And Solskjaer, who has taken just four points out of a possible 21 in the Premier League since taking over from Mackay, insists that he has the final say over transfers and that Tan is simply controlling the purse strings. He said: "I do football matters, the football decisions are mine.


"But Vincent Tan has to be a part of the structure that agrees on transfers - ins and outs - and that it's managed with a budget of x, not x plus y. He needs to know how much that is, and he needs to know agent fees and everything.


"He is very willing to invest and wants us to be successful and wants to know what we do, but it's got to be transparent, structured, and he is involved in that. But he doesn't identify players. We have scouts and I decide on who we go for, and then it's about whether we have the resources."
