Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Liverpool v Cardiff City - Anfield

Not that we wish to overshadow ex-Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade’s appointment as Cardiff City’s new manager, but Vincent Tan has used the opportunity to get in yet another sly dig at former Bluebirds boss (and Tan’s perennial arch-nemesis), Malky Mackay.

While welcoming Slade to Cardiff via a statement on the club website, Tan slid this little zing-a-linger into the third paragraph:

“Look at Russell’s track record. He certainly deserves to be given a chance.

“After all, Cardiff gave a chance to a mediocre manager from Watford and he took the Club to the Premier League.

“I did however give him a lot of money to spend for that – in fact, too much money.”

Oooh, bitchy. Whatever would Camp Drog s…

    LOL … VTan is crazy, I love this guy. But, um, please never buy my club!

  2. squiggle says:

    I don’t love him. Petulant, disrespectful and obviously confused when people don’t bow and scrape in his presence.

  3. silentman123 says:

    i used to hate this guy, but after mckays racism story came out, Tan may be justified.

  4. Jarren says:

    Definitely the bitchiest Bond villain ever!

    @silentman123: So the fact that McKay is a racist makes Tan a nice guy?

  5. Bob says:

    @Jarren – and a homophobic sexist.

    Tan’s not nice. Which mega-capitalist egomaniac is to be fair?
