It looks as though Malky Mackay will indeed still be in charge of Cardiff for their clash with Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, after owner Vincent Tan reportedly agreed to attend last minute discussions on Friday evening, according to BBC
The relationship between the Scot and his Malaysian boss is thought to have eroded beyond repair, and Tan handed chairman Mehmet Dalman the task of appointing Mackay’s successor, whilst remaining unsure whether to dismiss the manager before or after the trip to Anfield.
Dalman, however, has convinced Tan to return to the UK for a meeting in London on Friday evening to conduct a final round of negotiations before making any ultimate decisions.
It is thought that Dalman does have a successor in mind should Mackay end up departing despite these discussions, and the individual is a high-profile name currently working outside of the UK who retains an interest in moving to the Welsh outfit.
Mackay was absent from his club’s news conference on Friday, with assistant manager David Kerslake instead taking the meeting. He was unwilling to discuss the Scot’s future, however, simply stating: “All I’m here to do is talk about the Liverpool game.”
