Controversial Cardiff City owner is considering fixing one of his fan-perceived biggest mistakes, but it comes with a condition.

Tan may change the Bluebirds kit color back to blue from its current red if Cardiff City can lift itself back into the Premier League after Sunday made relegation official.

Tan, who also said he was more like James Bond than a “Bond villain” — a popular way media and fans have described the owner.

All this one day after embattled former manager Malky Mackay apologized to Tan for the issues that led to his firing:

“I have today reached a final settlement agreement with Cardiff City Football Club and am very pleased that all parties will now be able to make a clean break and move on.

“Wherever mistakes were made during my time at the club, I wish to apologise for any part that I played in them, and for any offence I might have caused, particularly to Tan Sri Vincent Tan and all City fans.”

Skeptical minds will say that perhaps an apology was part of the settlement, but Mackay has nonetheless apologized.
