Cardiff City sack Dave Jones

Cardiff City have sacked manager Dave Jones after failing to achieve promotion from the Championship this season.

The club released a statement on their official website explaining that Following an overall review and reflection on the performance of the team over the 2010 / 11 playing season, it has been decided to give Dave Jones notice to terminate his contract as manager of Cardiff City Football Club.

Cardiff CEO Gethin Jenkins paid tribute to the work Jones has done at the South-Wales club: “We would like to thank Dave Jones for his considerable efforts with the Club over the past six seasons. He leaves his post in the knowledge that he has left the Club in a far better position than when he arrived.

“Dave’s tenure has seen Cardiff City Football Club develop from a standpoint of Championship stability through to becoming regular promotion contenders, while also having taken the team to a FA Cup Final… We thank him for all that he has done and achieved with the Club and wish him well for the future.”

Cardiff finished the season in 4th place, holding the automatic promotion spots for a significant period, before losing their 2nd spot to Norwich. In the play-offs, they lost 3-0 over two legs to Reading.

The sacking comes on the day that Championship finalists Swansea City and Reading vow for a place in the Premier League.
