Tan flirts with Premier League action over Cardiff bonus offer

Vincent Tan may've dropped Cardiff City right in it with a mega survival bonus offer to his players.

The Daily Mail says the Bluebirds face a Premier League investigation after owner Tan offered his players a £3.7million bonus before Sunday's defeat by Tottenham.

Tan broke Premier League rules, which state every team must lodge their bonus schedule before the start of the season, when he gave his players a financial incentive to avoid relegation.

It is understood Tan did not offer the Cardiff squad a bonus to avoid the drop before the campaign began because he did not believe they would be in a relegation fight after his significant investment.

A spokesman for the billionaire Malaysian businessman said on Monday night: "We didn't realise it was against regulations. Vincent Tan has now rescinded the offer."
