EPL Cardiff City Owner Vincent Tan Open To Returning To Blue Kit From Red
Published May 12, 2014
ANTI-TAN GRAFFITI: The BBC reported "graffiti has been daubed at the entrance to the Cardiff City football stadium in opposition" to Tan. The graffiti on the Ninian Park gates in Sloper Road said "Tan out" and "We will always be blue," which refers to the club's "controversial rebrand." The Cardiff City Supporters' Trust said that the graffiti was "totally unacceptable" (BBC, 5/9).
MACKAY DROPS CLAIM: The PA reported former Cardiff City Manager Malky Mackay has "dropped his legal claim against the club after reaching a settlement on his sacking." The terms of the agreement are being "kept closely guarded but it is understood Mackay was seeking substantial compensation for his dismissal, which came in December after a difference of opinion with City's owner, Vincent Tan, about the direction of the club" (PA, 5/9).
