Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay wants the club’s owner, Vincent Tan, to publically explain the reasoning behind the appointment of an inexperienced 23-year-old to the role of head of recruitment, replacing Mackay’s trusted confidant Iain Moody, ESPN
Alisher Apsalyamov was named in the post last week and Mackay’s agent revealed that a meeting between the manager and the board is to take place, but Mackay does not want to discuss his own future at the club as much as a range of other issues. “We will be seeking to find out the support from Vincent Tan to Malky moving into the future,” Raymond Sparkes said.
“Malky does not want to talk about himself too much right now,” Sparkes added, “But he is aware the biggest question that many people have is what is the manager’s current situation.
“From the word go Malky’s concern has not been for himself, it is for the club itself. He is deeply concerned that what was being built at Cardiff City, the momentum being built over the last two years, is in danger of unravelling.”
Sparkes went on to say that of the 100 people employed by Cardiff, Mackay knew he had the support of 95 of them – but the five holdouts were the owner and his lackeys.
Mackay took Cardiff to promotion from the Championship last season, a first appearance in the Premier League and a first place in the top flight in 51 years. The Bluebirds have made a decent start to the Premier League, currently sitting 14th, with eight points from seven games.
