Mackay refuses to quit Cardiff

Monday, December 23, 2013

LIVERPOOL, England - Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay vowed not to resign after his side's 3-1 loss at Liverpool on Saturday, despite widespread reports that he faces the sack.

Reports have emerged in the British media that Mackay has been sent an email by owner Vincent Tan telling him to resign or face dismissal.

Mackay has a frosty relationship with Tan and reportedly angered the Malaysian by publicly expressing a desire to sign three new players in the January transfer window.

However, Mackay fulfilled his duties as usual during Saturday's Premier League game at Anfield and he said that he had no intention of walking away from the club.

"I reiterate 100 per cent that I absolutely won't be resigning from the football club," he told BT Sport.

Mackay received strong support from Cardiff's fans during the match, with visiting supporters brandishing banners bearing the words 'Tan Out' and 'We want our club black'.
