The 55-year-old was removed as manager in May to take the new position in a backroom re-shuffle at the Cardiff City Stadium, which was followed by the appointment of Paul Trollope as the club's new head coach.

Slade joined the Bluebirds as manager in October 2014 when he replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, moving from League One Leyton Orient.

He guided the Welsh outfit to an 11th and eighth place finish in the Championship in his two seasons in charge before being moved upstairs.

Slade counts Scarborough, Grimsby, Yeovil and Brighton as former teams he has managed before joining Orient in 2010.

He has been linked with the vacant manager's position at Charlton, according to reports.

Substitute Craig Noone produced a stunning late strike to earn Cardiff a 1-1 draw in their Championship opener at home to Fulham.

Cardiff seemed to be running out of ideas when Noone, who had been on the pitch for only eight minutes, rifled a 25-yard shot into the top corner of the net with only four minutes remaining.

What had been an evenly-balanced contest turned Fulham's way when Matt Smith punished Simon Moore's goalkeeping error two minutes after the re-start.

Wolves boosted their Sky Bet Championship play-off hopes as Bakary Sako's strike gave them a 1-0 win over 10-man Cardiff and spoiled Vincent Tan's return to the Welsh capital.

Kenny Jackett's men have now won four of their last five and are coming on strong at just the right time of the season as they target back-to-back promotions.

Cardiff, who had Peter Whittingham sent off midway through the second half, have now taken all three points in just one of their last eight home games and may have left their Malaysian owner wondering why he made the trip.

Hal Robson-Kanu booked Reading's place in the fifth round of the FA Cup with a late winner in a 2-1 victory at Cardiff.

Wales international Robson-Kanu, on as an 82nd minute substitute, swept home Jordan Obita's cross six minutes later after Oliver Norwood had cancelled out Kenwyne Jones' first-half header for the Bluebirds.

Tan open to having fan on Cardiff board

Cardiff chairman Mehmet Dalman says club owner Vincent Tan is "open to the idea" of having a fans' representative on the board following the return to the traditional blue kit.

On Friday, Malaysian businessman Tan removed the red home strip he introduced in 2012 in the wake of a record low crowd at the Cardiff City Stadium for the FA Cup third-round tie with Colchester and planned supporters' protests in the new year over the club's controversial rebranding exercise.

"Vincent is open to the idea," Dalman said about the possibility of supporters being represented on the Cardiff board.

"We have already made some bridges and I think this decision (returning kit colour to blue) will help us us get there much faster.

"I have started meeting with the fans' group or representatives before every board meeting for them to tell us our views.

"I've got closer to the fans at games and I'd like Vincent to do that because I think he'd actually find it's a wonderful world."

Juan Cala asks Cardiff to show him 'respect'

Cardiff City defender Juan Cala has accused the club of showing him a lack of respect after being sent to train with the academy squad.

Cala has only featured three times for the Championship club this season, with two of those appearances coming in the Capital One Cup.

New manager Russell Slade has instead opted to use Sean Morrison, Ben Turner and Bruno Manga as his preferred central defenders.
