The manager of Cardiff City, Malky Mackay, has said that the reports about him planning to leave the club are absolutely rubbish.
A few days back, Iain Moody who was considered to be pretty close to Mackay and was holding the post of the recruitment head at Cardiff City was axed by the club. Mackay was believed to be unhappy with that decision of the owners and he was reported to be planning to make a move away, but, the 41 years old Scottish manager made clear yesterday that he isn’t going anywhere.
Cardiff City’s current position in the Premier League points table isn’t that good. They are not too far away from the relegation zone. They have won 3 and have lost 5 out of the 12 games that they have played so far in the league. They have 13 points in the bag at the moment.
Taking to the reporters yesterday, Mackay said, “You don’t want to be in the news because of wrong reasons, but, unfortunately, that’s the case with us at the moment. The spotlight is on us but not because of our football, it’s because of something else.”
“I am really feeling bad for our supporters. They have always given us huge amount of support and we started well by defeating City when we played here at Cardiff for the first time this season. That gave the supporters immense joy, but, now, this incident would have let them down a bit.”
“I am not upset with whatever has happened. I am focussed on my job. I want to ensure that we don’t end up in the relegation zone. I want Cardiff to be a Premier League team next season as well.”
Cardiff City’s next game is against Arsenal. That’s a home game for them and will be played on 30th of November.
