"It has not."

Vincent Tan calls Wigan owner and manager 'racist'

Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan has hit out at Wigan owner Dave Whelan and manager Malky Mackay calling them both 'racists'.

The Malaysian businessman was speaking after Whelan gave an interview to the Guardian where he said 'Jews chase money more than anybody else' and said it was acceptable to refer to Chinese person as a 'chink'.

Tan sacked Mackay, who was appointed Wigan manager on Wednesday, as Cardiff boss last year.

It was later revealed that Mackay had exchanged offensive text messages with a former colleague.

Mackay has apologised for his involvement in the texts and denied he had prejudices, saying: "I'm no racist. I'm no sexist. I'm no homophobe. I'm no anti-Semite."

"I think he insulted the dignity of all Jewish people. I think he insulted the dignity of Chinese," Tan told the BBC.

"I'm so disappointed the chairman of Wigan, a big club, is also a racist. This is a racist chairman hiring a racist manager.

"I hope that stops at two racists in Wigan, not snowballing to 2,000 or 20,000 racists in Wigan."

Whelan has since apologised for the comments, saying he did not mean to cause offence.

The Wigan said earlier: "I apologise on my behalf and on behalf of the club. We do not ever want to insult any nation or any person in the world."

The loss was Slade's first since replacing Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, and he has urged his players to show a tougher mentality when they take on Leeds United on Saturday.

"When you go a goal down there is a need to be mentally tough and what cost us against Millwall was the immediate spell after that goal," Slade said,

“It took a little bit of time to get a reaction after we went behind. We need a reaction against Leeds on Saturday now.”
