Twitter reaction as Cardiff manager Malky Mackay sacked by owner Vincent Tan [Tweets]

Harsh as it may be, there has been a certain inevitability about the sacking of Cardiff manager Malky Mackay.

With a madman owner in Vincent Tan, the writing has been on the wall for some time, with the owner e-mailing Mackay ‘Resign or be sacked’ last week.

Nonetheless, it is a mighty shame for football fans, as Mackay had taken his Cardiff side to the Premier League following a brilliant season as runaway leaders of the Championship.

He was doing a fine job so far this season, with wins over Manchester City and Swansea highlights in a first half of the season that sees the Welsh team lie 16th in his departure.
