Cardiff fans dismiss calls from owner Tan to apologise for their protests

Cardiff City fans insist they do not need to apologise to owner Vincent Tan who claims it is a small minority who are opposed to the way he has run the club. The Malaysian businessman told BBC Sport he would not change the club's colours back from red to blue.

The Cardiff City Supporters' Trust said it didn't believe fans needed to apologise "for campaigning for a return to our traditional blue colours".

Tim Hartley, the trust's chairman, claimed Tan was being "disrespectful" for not agreeing to see the fans and called for a meeting with him to discuss the club's future.

"The first thing he could do... would be to meet the trust and Cardiff City Supporters' Club," he said.

"We are disappointed that Mr Tan has raised uncertainty about the future at a time when the team is fighting to retain Premier League status."
