Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay will decide his future at the club after a critical board meeting that’s scheduled for Monday.
In an interview with Wales Online, Mackay’s agent said:
“Malky understands there has been a lack of clarity and will insist at the end of the board meeting that the chairman or other senior directors provide supporters with a clear explanation of what has been going on. If that cannot be done, he will take it upon himself to do it. He does not want the club’s fans left in the dark for too much longer.”
Exactly what the full story is that Mackay believes has not been told, we’ll have to wait to find out. There have been reports that City players are upset about bonuses, and that Cardiff owner Vincent Tan has been barred from entering the dressing room. On top of that, the head of recruitment Iain Moody has been let go by the club and replaced by a 23-year-old friend of Tan’s son who was previously an executive assistant. There were also reports that Mackay was asked to resign a few weeks ago.
Mackay’s agent says that the manager is not prepared to resign, but City supporters will be hoping that the issues will be resolved soon.
