Mackay Sacked By Cardiff

Malky Mackay has been sacked as manager of Cardiff City after months of public disagreements with club's owner Vincent Tan.

The news comes following Saturday’s 3-0 home defeat to Southampton, just days after Mehmet Dalman, Cardiff's chairman,  insisted he would remain in charge ‘for the foreseeable future’.

Mackay led the Welsh club into the top flight for the first time in 51 years, was told that he had been relieved of his duties after Vincent Tan, Cardiff's owner, and finally got his way.

Tan had issued Mackay with an extraordinary email at the start of last week, ordering him to resign or face being sacked, with Mackay refusing to stand down as Cardiff City boss.

"The Board of Directors at Cardiff City Football Club have today relieved Malky Mackay of his duties. A new first team manager will be appointed and announced in due course," read the official statement on the club’s website.
