Cardiff City's owner, Vincent Tan, has issued a statement on his decision to sack manager Malky Mackay, saying it was "no longer fair" for the "uncomfortable state of affairs" around his posting to continue, according to Wales Online.
"There has been a good deal of publicity generated by and about Mr Malky Mackay over the last few months," Tan said. "Indeed far too much dirty linen has been exposed to the public gaze.
"But, I stress, not by me. Indeed, I have deliberately not responded to this, hoping that the club can be judged on its football rather than personalised arguments about who said what to whom.
"I have, however, regretfully concluded that it is no longer fair to the club, its players, its fans, or the public more generally, for this uncomfortable state of affairs to continue. Cardiff City Football Club means far too much to us all for it to be distracted by this."
