Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says that the pep talk from owner Vincent Tan will certainly help the club to help in the remaining 10 matches of the season. It is understood that Cardiff owner Tan made an appearance in the club’s dressing room after their 1-0 defeat against Tottenham. He was not critical of the players for this defeat, but instead said that they had performed admirably well against a top team. Solskjaer says that the involvement from the owner and also the talk he had given to motivate the players will certainly show its benefits from next match.

Cardiff were unlikely to come away with nothing from the visit to White Hart Lane. They were beaten only by a solitary goal from Roberto Soldado. However, it is results that count in this business and Cardiff find themselves very close to the bottom of the table. Since replacing Mackay as the manager of Cardiff, Solskjaer has not been able to produce the kind of results many expected him to do. Cardiff have won only one out of the last five matches. As a result, they already find themselves three points adrift of safety. Further, teams like Crystal Palace, West Brom, and Sunderland have games in hand over Cardiff and could potentially be several points ahead of the bluebirds.

“He’s committed and supportive” he told  ” It’s the first time since I’ve been here, it was a good time. They were pleased to see he came. We all appreciated it. We’re all sticking in it together, that’s the key. If you’re going to get out of this, it’s not one performance, it’s a 10-game run. It’s a 10-game season now. This run-in, it needs every single one of us,” said the former Manchester United player. Cardiff next match will be against fellow relegation rivals Fulham.
