Cardiff City’s Manager, Malky Mackay Asked To Resign, Else Would Be Sacked

Malky Mackay, the Cardiff City manager has been asked by the owner of the club, Vincent Tan, to resign from his post or otherwise, he would be sacked.

Apparently, Tan has emailed Mackay on Monday about his grievances and has pointed out reasons for asking the manager to resign.

Tan highlighted areas like new signings, transfer budgets and results which clearly haven’t favoured them. The businessman from Malaysia also pointed out that the statistical record of Cardiff city, this season isn’t encouraging.

Earlier, when the club was going through a tough period, the Scot had insisted that he would not resign. The choice isn’t his at present since the decision is being forced on him.

“The Club has not sent any official letter to the manager yet”, a Cardiff spokesperson said.

Ten was reportedly “extremely disappointed and upset” after Mackay said that he wanted to recruit three players in the January transfer window.

The Ex-Watford coach and Scotland international was announced as Cardiff’s new manager in 2011, with the hope that the club would constantly make it to the Barclay’s Premier league. His future was uncertain at one point when Iain Moody, the head of recruitment, was sacked from his job in October.

Tan feels that the manager has overspent and will do so in the future. Cardiff signed striker Andreas Cornelius for 7.5 million pounds, defender Steven Caulker for 8 million pounds and midfielder Gary Medel for 11 million pounds.

The provided transfer budget was only 35 million pounds, and yet Tan believes that Mackay spent 50 million pounds in the summer along with the add-ons.

One of Tan’s concerns surround a perceived overspend of the transfer budget agreed between Mackay, Lim and Moody.

Cardiff City are currently 15th in the Premier League and play an away game in Liverpool, this Saturday.
