Watford say farewell to boss Mackay as he leaves for Cardiff

Watford have confirmed Malky Mackay has left Vicarage Road to take up the manager's job at Championship rivals Cardiff. Cardiff, who sacked Dave Jones after suffering play-off disappointment for the second successive season, have yet to confirm Mackay's appointment.

But a statement from new Watford owner Laurence Bassini on Watford's official website read: "Cardiff City has now confirmed Malky Mackay as its new manager - and he leaves with the best wishes of the Hornets' leadership team.

"It means Watford FC is entering a period of time at the end of which the club will announce who will succeed Mackay as manager of Watford Football Club.

"I can't hide the fact I'm disappointed to see Malky leave.

"I do, however, wish him the very best of luck and every success for the future as he begins work at his new club."
