The Norwegian former manager of Cardiff City, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked from his managerial position at the English club after the squad suffered relegation from the Premier League and things did not improve as they continued struggling in the 2nd tier English League at the Championship League.
It hasn’t been until recently that a new manager has been appointed as it was made announced to the public on October 6 that Russell Slade was the man selected.
The Malaysian businessman and owner of Cardiff City, Vincent Tan made it official to the media that Russell Slade was selected as the new coach after he had asked people around and everyone gave a positive evaluation concerning Russell Slade.
‘’I’m delighted to appoint Russell Slade as the Manager of Cardiff City. I have personally offered Russell this opportunity after giving much thought to the needs of the Club at this point in time and firmly believe that he is the right person for the job. I have spoken to many knowledgeable people in the game about Russell, and the feedback has been extremely positive’’
Slade was actually working with Cardiff City within the internal staff of the club as a consultant ever since he departed from coaching his former club Leyton Orient.
Vincent Tan is hoping that Russell Slade will remain at the head coach of Cardiff City for the upcoming 18 years and hopefully stay even longer in charge of the Championship League club than Arsene Wenger with Arsenal.
The former manager of Yeovil Town, Russell Slade displayed his appreciation towards the new role that he has at Cardiff City as the Englishman said that Cardiff City has a fantastic squad but all that is left to do now is start establishing a relationship with the players and that’s what he will try to achieve in every training session and every match.
