Cardiff to be questioned over Tan bonus offer

Cardiff City are to face questions from the Premier League after owner Vincent Tan offered to award the club’s squad a £3.7m bonus should they avoid relegation, Sky Sports has reported.

It is said that Tan made the offer to the players when he attended a team meeting prior to Sunday’s 1-0 defeat away to Tottenham, but Premier League rules state that any bonus offers must be decided and lodged before the start of the season.

The Malaysian businessman has since withdrawn his offer after learning of the Premier League’s legislation, which says: "Full details of a player's remuneration including all benefits to which he is entitled whether in cash or in kind shall be set out in his contract. The terms of a contract between a club and a player shall be strictly adhered to."

Bluebirds chairman Mehmet Dalman has described the affair as a misunderstanding. "This has all been taken out of context and is a misunderstanding,’ he said. ‘Yes, Vincent did make the offer on Saturday but he has no executive powers. He's just the owner. He's not running the club and it wasn't up to him to make this offer.

"I've told him there are strict rules about bonuses and we'd talk further about implementing with the payment structure for next season. Please bear in mind, Vincent Tan meant well on this occasion."
