Cardiff City Football Club are delighted to announce a three and a half year contract extension that will see Malky Mackay remain with the club until at least June 2016.
Malky joined Cardiff City from Watford last summer and quickly won the respect and admiration of all connected to the club. Along with a dedicated and newly assembled coaching and football staff he has continually kept Cardiff City firmly in the hunt for Premier League promotion, along with the recent and historic achievement of securing a first ever Carling Cup Final place for the club at Wembley Stadium this coming weekend.
Speaking of the new contract, Dato' Chan Tien Ghee, Cardiff City Football Club Chairman said, "We are honoured to see Malky commit himself to our great club for the long term. His dedication and hard work has been a joy to see over the last eight months, as has the positive influence it has instilled with everyone associated with Cardiff City. The length of contract outlines the strength of bond we all feel and we can look forward with optimism to the years ahead under his stewardship."
Malky Mackay added, "It's with great pride that I have signed a new and long term contract. My positive thoughts of Cardiff, as a city, a club and its supporters have only been enhanced further since coming to South Wales last summer. Along with my coaching team, my squad of players and the many hard working people at the club I look forward to the future as we aim to bring success to this club."
We are sure that all Cardiff City Football Club supporters and partners will join us in celebrating this news as we push to make history on two fronts this season. Malky Mackay will next be available to press and media on Thursday afternoon ahead of our Carling Cup Final against Liverpool this weekend.
