Cardiff manager Dave Jones has hit out at media reports of a board meeting at the club to discuss his future, branding the rumours "a blatant lie".
Jones has come under pressure in some quarters following Cardiff's recent poor slump in form that has seen them win just two of their last 10 games. But chief executive Gethin Jenkins insists his position is not under scrutiny, and Jones has criticised those who are keen to create speculation.
"I live and work in a world where it seems to be sensational news if you`re not doing right," he told Cardiff City Player. "This phantom board meeting that was called, and everything else, it`s people writing things that just aren`t true or saying things and that can`t be right.
"You can`t set off rumours and scaremongers and then actually print it. It was even put on Sky without checking an actual story, that for me is not being truthful and the one thing I am is truthful.
"That is a blatant lie and is trying to cause more trouble than what actually needs needs to be done. The people who are doing it are not checking it, I certainly wouldn't like to go to war with those people because as soon as there`s a sign of trouble they drop you like a red hot potato."
Meanwhile, Jones insists Cardiff have not received a single transfer enquiry about star striker Jay Bothroyd or any other members of his squad who feature in his plans.
