Trust statement following allegations made about comments by Cardiff City’s former manager Malky Mackay

In a statement today following media reports on comments allegedly made by Cardiff City’s former manager Malky Mackay, Tim Hartley, chair of Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust, said: “The Trust condemns without reservation any racist, homophobic and sexist comments whenever and wherever they are made.

“We have spoken out against issues like homophobic chanting at football matches and in 2013 issued a statement on the subject https://www.ccfctrust.org/?p=2875. We are also organising a Trust five-a-side football tournament in October involving ethnic minority and faith groups to celebrate friendship through football.

“We are not privilege to the details of the dossier concerning alleged comments made by our former manager Malky Mackay. The Football Association has been sent documents by the club and we await the outcome of any investigation. It would be wrong of us to speculate further at this stage without any detailed information being made available.”
