Cardiff City chairman Mehmet Dalman has offered the clubs supporters an apology for the recent off-the-field ‘noise’ surrounding the sacking of Malky Mackay, reports the BBC.

Dalman said he hoped the supporters would ‘forgive’ the club for the recent controversy, and also get behind new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Bluebirds supporters found themselves at the centre of a row behind owner Vincent Tan, and Solskjaer’s predecessor Malky Mackay, who ended up losing his job as Cardiff City manager a week ago.

“I hope you’ll forgive us for that and put some trust in us to build this club to what I think it can be built into,” said Dalman.

“This club has huge potential but it all has to start at the football pitch. So less noise about non-football and a lot of noise on the football pitch.”

The Cyprus-born merchant banker then offered an apology for the ‘agony’ the Cardiff fans had been caused by off-the-field stories and speculation surrounding the club.

“I sincerely apologise for that because that was never our intention,” said Dalman.

Dalman also pleaded with the fans to back new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who signed a 12-month rolling contract with the club yesterday, and is reported to have been afforded £25million to spend on new players by Tan.

Dalman explained that the 40-year-old former Manchester United striker, has already told him which players he hopes to bring to the club.

“He knows what he wants and yes we have discussed all that,” said Dalman. “The first and only objective is to remain in the Premier League.”
