Controversial Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan has issued a statement on his sacking of Malky Mackay, the embattled manager who guided the Bluebirds into the Premier League:

“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.

“I have, however, regretfully concluded that it is no longer fair to the Club, its players, its fans, or the public more generally, for this uncomfortable state of affairs to continue. Cardiff City Football Club means far too much to us all for it to be distracted by this.”

The Malaysian billionaire’s tone will be met with derision by legions of Cardiff supporters and Mackay supporters. The sacking became inevitable but surely Tan’s claims that he played a lesser or non-existent role in the fray are worthy of an eye roll at best and disturbing at worst.

    The more I read Vincent Tan’s comments concerning the sacking of Malky Mackay as Cardiff City manager, the more I’m convinced that there is a special place in hell waiting for Mr. Tan, especially after you compare/contrast what Tan said with what Mackay said.

    Managing Cardiff City now makes the Washington Redskins look like a great gig.
