Statement from Cardiff City Football Club
Following an overall review and reflection on the performance of the team over the 2010 / 11 playing season, it has been decided to give Dave Jones notice to terminate his contract as manager of Cardiff City Football Club.
Speaking on behalf of the Club, Chairman and Board, CEO Gethin Jenkins said:
"We would like to thank Dave Jones for his considerable efforts with the Club over the past six seasons. He leaves his post in the knowledge that he has left the Club in a far better position than when he arrived.
"Dave's tenure has seen Cardiff City Football Club develop from a standpoint of Championship stability through to becoming regular promotion contenders, while also having taken the team to an FA Cup Final.
"His efforts in the recruitment and development of players also meant that the sale of these players at times enabled the Club to survive. He has also had a significant contribution in the development of training facilities and the stadium during his Cardiff City career. We thank him for all that he has done and achieved with the Club and wish him well for the future."
A search will now begin for a new manager which will be lead by CEO Gethin Jenkins and Director Alan Whiteley for recommendation to the Board.
