Cardiff manager Mackay doesn’t expect Palace job offer

Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay is not expecting a job offer from Crystal Palace despite recent reports in the media, according to BBC Sport.

Mackay’s former head of recruitment at the Bluebirds, Iain Moody, is now director of football at Selhurst Park, and with the Eagles still looking for a permanent replacement for former boss Ian Holloway, coupled with Mackay’s reported recent issues at the Welsh club, speculation has mounted that he could be on his way to London.

When Moody departed newly promoted Cardiff to be replaced by known 23-year-old Alisher Apsalyamov (who has since temporarily stepped aside due to visa issues) odds on Mackay following Moody out of the door were slashed – but he has remained in his position, and does not expect to be offered the vacant role at Palace.

Eagles co-chairman Steve Parish admitted that Moody is someone they will be consulting during their search for a new manager, but refused to name any names – stating simply that the man they do eventually appoint must be the right man for the job.
