Trust statement on the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The Trust today issued the following statement following the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer:

Tim Hartley, chairman of Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust: “Given the team’s performances on the field this season, it was inevitable that the manager’s position would come under scrutiny.

“What is needed now is a new manager who can energise the players and take the club up the Championship table.

“The next appointment of a manager will be crucial. The club must get the decision spot on because there is need for stability and renewed success at the football club.

“Chairman, Mehmet Dalman, cites a ‘difference in philosophy’ of approach to football in his statement. The departure of Ole again flags up the need for the club to have some recognised footballing knowledge and experience in the boardroom to ensure we get and then keep a manager who knows his football and can push forward for promotion.

“We wish Ole all the best for the future.”
