Fans of Cardiff City Football club have expressed "surprise" and "concern" at moves that they say put a question mark over the future of manager Malky Mackay.
The club has faced scathing criticism of a decision to put a 23-year-old work experience student from Kazakhstan in charge of transfers, as Nick Hartley reports.
Cardiff City Supporters' Trust have responded to speculation over the future of Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay, saying fans will be 'concerned'.
They're calling for a 'clear statement' on the Club's position.
Malky Mackay is now the bookies' favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave their post.
The fallout at Cardiff City has emanated from the suspension of Iain Moody, who was Cardiff's head of recruitment, and a trusted right-hand-man he brought with him from Watford in 2011.
The situation at Cardiff City is described as a "farce" and a "crisis" in the Welsh and London newspapers today.
The front page of the Sun (£) reads "you don't know what you're doing, Tan", and refers to Cardiff's Malaysian owner Vincent Tan "hiring a work experience student who painted their ground to take charge of transfers."
The Daily Mirror says Mackay will be "shocked and angry" after his head of recruitment Iain Moody was replaced by "rookie 23-year-old" Alisher Apsalyamov.
The Daily Mail reports Mackay pledging "they won't force me out", despite his right-hand-man being suspended, and replaced with a school friend of owner Vincent Tan's son.
The paper says the reason by Tan's decision to make the personnel change is his upset at what he thinks was overspending on transfers this summer.
Speculation over the future of Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay is continuing, after the club suspended one of the most trusted members of his backroom staff.
Head of recruitment Iain Moody, who worked for Mackay during his time at Watford before moving to South Wales with him in 2011, has been replaced by Alisher Apsalyamov, a 23-year-old from Kazakhstan.
The Western Mail and South Wales Echo are reporting that Bluebirds chief executive Simon Lim answered "no comment", when asked if Mackay had been asked to resign.
Apsalyamov is thought to be a friend of owner Vincent Tan's son and appears to have no previous experience in football.
Mackay has regularly praised Moody's scouting and recruitment work at Cardiff, where he has helped to bring in players including Steven Caulker, Gary Medel, Kevin Theophile-Catherine and Fraizer Campbell.
This fallout comes just days after it was revealed that owner Tan had been in a dispute with Cardiff players over bonus payments.
