Mackay future remains in doubt at Cardiff

Malky Mackay's position at Cardiff City remains in doubt after marathon boardroom talks yesterday.

The Daily Mal says Mackay remained in charge at Cardiff City on Monday night following a five-hour board meeting, but there are still significant doubts over his future at the club.

The lengthy conference call between Mackay, the club's UK-based directors and those in Malaysia was amicable, despite the Scot's aggressive stance on the extraordinary dismissal of Iain Moody, his former head of recruitment.

Mackay has warned the club that he will go public with his reservations about Moody's sacking if they do not tell supporters the reasoning behind owner Vincent Tan's decision to replace Moody with Alisher Apsalyamov, a 23-year-old friend of Tan's son U-Jiun.

It remains to be seen if Mackay follows through with his threat if the club do not meet his demands for clarity on Moody's dismissal, which has been privately attributed to a £15million overspend in the transfer market this summer.
