Cardiff City have sacked manager Dave Jones after the Welsh club failed to gain promotion to the Premier League.
The Bluebirds lost out in the Championship semi-final playoffs with a 3-0 home loss to Reading and the club has decided to terminate Jones’ contract, ending his six-year tenure at the Cardiff City Stadium.
"We would like to thank Dave Jones for his considerable efforts with the club over the past six seasons,” said CEO Gethin Jenkins told the club’s official website.
"He leaves his post in the knowledge that he has left the club in a far better position than when he arrived.
"Dave's tenure has seen Cardiff City Football Club develop from a standpoint of Championship stability through to becoming regular promotion contenders, while also having taken the team to an FA Cup Final.
"He has also had a significant contribution in the development of training facilities and the stadium during his Cardiff career. We thank him for all that he has done and wish him well for the future."
