Solskjaer To Take Charge Of Cardiff?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains the favourite to become the new Cardiff City Boss as talks between the two parties continue.

Solskjaer, in charge of Norwegian club Molde, was quickly listed as favourite to take over in south Wales when Malky Mackay was sacked last Friday.

Chairman Mehmet Dalman has stated he has one candidate in mind and but denies he had discussions with Solskjaer, saying: "I might have and I might not have".

Caretaker boss David Kerslake, Mackay's assistant, has taken charge of the team on a temporary basis and will oversee the team's trip to Arsenal on New Year's Day.

He held brief talks with Vincent Tan ahead of Saturday's 2-2 draw with Sunderland, but was not told how long he will remain at the helm.

"I don't know anything. It's as we were the last game. I've been told to take temporary charge of the team and that's the only thing that I know," said Kerslake.

Asked whether he knew if Cardiff were close to an appointment, Kerslake replied: "No, absolutely in the dark on that situation.

"I spoke to the owner, chief exec and the chairman before the game against Sunderland and it was just really thanking me for taking the team and wished me well."
