Malky Mackay sacked: ‘Far too much dirty linen has been exposed to the public gaze’ claims Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan
Tan released a statement to confirm the reasons why he chose to sack Mackay in which he claimed the situation could not be allowed to go on further
Friday 27 December 2013
Having finally been sacked yesterday, Malky Mackay then became the victim of a stinging attack from Cardiff owner Vincent Tan.
A meeting between Tan and chairman Mehmet Dalman in London yesterday ultimately ended Mackay’s successful two and a half years in charge with chief executive Simon Lim handed the role of breaking the bad news. However, rather than thank the Scot for delivering a League Cup final and promotion with the Championship title, Tan stuck the boot in.
A statement issued from Cardiff on behalf of Tan read: “There has been a good deal of publicity generated by and about Mr Malky Mackay over the last few months. Indeed far too much dirty linen has been exposed to the public gaze.
“But, I stress, not by me. Indeed, I have deliberately not responded to this, hoping that the club can be judged on its football rather than personalised arguments about who said what to whom.”
Assistant manager David Kerslake and first-team coach Joe McBride will take charge of the crunch home clash with Sunderland in the late kick-off. But the search for a new manager has already begun with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer top of Cardiff’s wishlist.
