A Cardiff fan group has expressed its concern over the long-term future of boss Malky Mackay and called for answers from the club over the departure of head of recruitment Iain Moody who was replaced by an unknown 23-year-old - thought to be a friend of owner Vincent Tan's son.

The Cardiff City Supporters' Trust now wants an explanation of recent developments.

Chairman Tim Hartley said: "Despite Monday's lengthy board meeting supporters are still concerned about the long-term future of our manager.

"There is confusion over the departure of Iain Moody with Malky Mackay's agent now stating that he will make a statement if the club remains silent.

"Bluebirds fans deserve a full explanation following the board meeting,
including the reasoning behind the decision to appoint Alisher Apsalyamov as acting head of recruitment.

"The events of the last week at Cardiff demonstrate the need for a new approach to the ownership and governance of professional football clubs.
"Cardiff could make a start by acting in a more transparent way and by engaging and communicating with fans.

"It could also consider having a supporter director who would be able to represent the fans' views at the top table.

"We reiterate our support for Malky Mackay, who has been one of the best managers in the club's history."
