Cardiff City send Paul Trollope to the job centre

24 hours after Swansea City sacked Francesco Guidolin and their Welsh rivals Cardiff City have followed suit, booting Paul Trollope out of the door after just a dozen matches at the helm.

The former Bristol Rovers manager was a surprise appointment in the summer following the departure of Russell Slade, and in truth the 44-year-old never got going, losing eight of his 12 league and cup matches in charge of the Bluebirds.

Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Burton - the club's sixth loss in their last seven league games - proved to be his 12th and final game as manager of Cardiff, as he now becomes the Championship's second managerial casualty in as many days.

Cardiff will now join managerless Aston Villa in the search for a new manager during the international break. Neil Warnock has emerged as the early favourite in the Next Cardiff City Manager Market with the likes of Craig Bellamy, David Jones, James Rowberry and Ryan Giggs also in contention.
