Cardiff owner Tan hints at kit U-turn

Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan has hinted that he may change the club’s colours back from red to the traditional blue, but only if and when they return to the Premier League, BBC Sport has reported.

Tan controversially changed the colour of the club’s home kit to red in 2012 in a move which provoked anger among large sections of supporters, with the Malaysian claiming that red was a ‘lucky’ colour, and that it would appeal to a wider global audience.

The Bluebirds won promotion to the Premier League in their first season playing in red, but their fortunes have changed since with relegation back to the Championship after only a year in the top-flight was confirmed with a defeat at Newcastle United last time out.

And Tan, who also welcomed former manager Malky Mackay’s decision to end legal action against his December sacking and claimed that comparisons with a Bond villain were unfair, revealed that he would sit down with the fans and discuss the future of the red kit if they return to the Premier League.

He said: "Let us get back to Premier League first and after we are there I assure fans, the Supporters' Trust and all of them, that I will sit down with them and we will find a solution that I hope will be satisfactory for all - for them and for me also.

"We would like to work closely with the fans. We will try to engage and meet as often as we can. Our chairman [Mehmet Dalman] will have constant dialogue and whenever I can I will join them."
