Malky MacKay Moves To Head Of Premier League Sack Race Betting

Malky MacKayIt may be an International break but that hasn't stopped the speculation in the Premier League continuing on the managerial front. Malky Mackay has been the man in the spotlight over the past couple of days with reports of unrest coming out of Cardiff City. That follows the news that MacKay's trusted Head of Recruitment, Iain Moody, has been placed on garden leave and replaced with a friend of the owners son.

Alisher Apsalyamov is understood to have been given the role of recruitment at the club despite having next to no football experience at the top level. Apsalyamov reportedly went to the same Swiss finishing school as the son of Cardiff owner Vincent Tan and he will now be in charge of brining players to the club during the January transfer window. Apsalyamov has been at the club since the summer but only in a maintenance role which makes his promotion all the more surprising.

Malky MacKay will no doubt have been unsettled by the appointment and his future is now in question. Punters have been piling money on the Scotsman in the Sack Race betting over the past couple of days with Ladbrokes going even money about MacKay being the next Premier League Manager for the high jump. The speculation has been just as rife in the newspapers with reports suggesting that MacKay is unhappy with the situation he now find himself in.

MacKay is clearly a popular man with the Cardiff fans having masterminded their promotion to the Premier League and it will be a worrying time for the faithful. They have started life in the top flight in good fashion and anything that unsettles the club could well have a major impact on their ability to stave off relegation.

Tan has already caused plenty of controversy in Cardiff following his decision to change the club's home kit from blue to red last season. It would be a surprise to see MacKay resign over this latest controversy at the club but his position is clearly under some pressure. The former Norwich player has done an outstanding job in South Wales when it comes to results on the pitch but maybe it is the off field drama at the club which could play a part in his down-fall.
