Refused to leave the stadium – Now they have won

20 minutes after the end of the game between Liverpool and Cardiff,  the song was still coming inside the Anfield.

”Don’t sack Mackay, Malky Mackay,

I just don’t think you understand,

Because if you sack Mackay, Malky Mackay,

You’re gonna have a riot on your hands.”

Called to mediation talks

Cardiff’s owner, Vincent Tan, had given the manager Malky Mackay an ultimatum before the game against Liverpool: Resign or be fired.

Cardiff supporters protested with banners and with songs against Tan’s decision and was also given support by the home supporters (Liverpool) who applauded their efforts. Not even the eccentric billionaire Tan could turn the blind eye  for the fans effort to keep the manager.

According to the BBC, the Malaysian withdrew his ultimatum to Mackay. Instead, the manager was called to mediation talks with the club chairman Mehmet Dalman to resolve the situation .

” Will remain manager”

In October , we managed to do so everyone could work together and we ‘ll try to do it again so everyone can move on. Now we have at least room for a dialogue which gives us an opportunity to resolve this . We want to work towards reconciliation and Vincent Tan has given us the ability to do it, says the president Dalman to the club’s website .

Last season, Mackay managed to take Cardiff back to the Premier League for the first time in 53 years . Now , the fans have thanked him by saving his job.

Right now, the manager will be Malky over the foreseeable future and will remain so if nothing else happens , says Dalman .
