Trust chair’s plea as new manager is appointed

Trust chair Tim Hartley has wished  Russell Slade well as he takes over as new Bluebirds manager.

Tim Hartley said: “The appointment of Russell Slade comes at a crucial time for Cardiff City. We desperately need a period of stability if the club is to prosper.

“Fans have stuck by the club through all the off the field controversy. It’s now time for the players, management and supporters to work together to get the City back into the Premier League.

“We wish Russell well in his new role and hope he can turn around the fortunes of the club so we can quickly move up the Championship table.”
