Who could replace Malky Mackay as manager of Cardiff City?
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Yilmaz Vural and Dave Jones among those linked
The future of Malky Mackay looks bleak amid reports that he has been given an ultimatum of 'resign or be sacked'.
That ultimatum has come from owner Vincent Tan, who is understood to have a number of grievances with his leadership. Among them is a belief that the newly promoted side should be among the top four sides in the Premier League.
