Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan has said that fans should accept the changes that the club has made with respect to its colours. Cardiff city are well known as the club that holds blue coloured to the heart. However, they recently have confirmed that they will be playing in red colours from next season onwards. This move has infuriated the fans who have been following the club for many years. The Malaysian investor has said in the statement following his move that it is in the best interests of the club that the club has decided to move to red colour.
The Championship club are expected to be receiving around £ 100 million in new investment from the Malaysian investor. He has also revealed the details of the investment that will follow in the subsequent seasons, as Cardiff city look to get into the Premier league after a long gap. Vincent Tan has made investments in the club to the tune of £ 40 million in the last two seasons. However, he has revealed that he will now be increasing the investment to around £ 100 million shortly. This news, however, is unlikely to please the fans, who are extremely angry at this decision by the club to play in red.
“I would like to emphasise that I hold no desire to trample on club history or heritage and would be saddened if supporters thought that this was my intention. I believe that our club has great potential, but in order to realise that potential real world business and financial decisions need to be made at the appropriate and opportune time. As investors, we are duty bound to explore ways in which we feel the club can grow over the long term,” said Vincent Tan in a statement issued on the official site of the club.
