Osaze’s Coach Sacked!

Nigerian international Osaze Odemwingie will miss his mentor, Malky Mackay, who was sacked as Manager of EPL side, Cardiff City on Friday.
Mackay brought Osaze to Cardiff this season, after his career nosedived at former Club, West Brom. The coach, a Scot was relieved of his duties the day after the Premier League side were defeated 3-0 at home by Southampton.
Mackay’s acrimonious departure comes despite the club granting him a reprieve last weekend after controversial Malaysian owner Vincent Tan’s e-mail demanding he either resigns or be sacked. That ultimatum was briefly lifted when chairman Mehmet Dalman stated Mackay would be in charge for the “forsee-able future”, but the 3-0 Boxing Day defeat against Southampton proved to be the ex-Watford boss’ last in charge.
A statement on the Cardiff website read: “The Board of Directors at Cardiff City Football Club have relieved Malky Mackay of his duties. A new first team manager will be appointed and announced in due course.”
Tan’s email had included a list of grievances with the former Watford manager, and Mackay said he had been left “deeply upset” by its content.
There has been ill-feeling between the two since Tan’s removal of Iain Moody as his head of recruitment in October, and the owner was said to be furious at Mackay’s hopes of adding to his squad in January, which resulted in last week’s incendiary email.
