Cardiff boss Solskjaer insists no bonus issues with Tan

Cardiff City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has played down owner Vincent Tan's alleged survival bonus offer to his players.

Tan was reported to have made an offer of £3.7m to the squad prior to last week's game against Tottenham, if they stay up.

Premier League rules state that all bonus offers have to be lodged with them prior to the season starting.

Solskjaer said; "We've spoken to the Premier League and they know the situation and I don't think there will be a problem.

"Whether he offered this, that or the other, is completely irrelevant.

"He's the owner of the club and he wants this club to be successful.

"When he was stood up on that chair and was talking to them, it was brilliant."
