Cardiff board set for meeting over Moody removal

Cardiff are due to hold a board meeting on Monday in the wake of the removal of Iain Moody as head of recruitment, Press Association Sport understands.

The meeting is believed to have been scheduled prior to Moody being suspended and subsequently placed on gardening leave, but that topic is certain to be on the agenda as he was one of manager Malky Mackay's most-trusted lieutenants.

Chief executive Simon Lim is expected to attend, but it is understood owner Vincent Tan will not be present.

The loss of Moody has placed Mackay's position under scrutiny but Press Association Sport understands the Scot has no intention of resigning, and the club have denied reports Mackay was asked to leave his post.

Cardiff's Malaysian owner Tan has handed Moody's duties on an acting basis to 23-year-old Kazakhstani Alisher Apsalyamov.

Apsalyamov is thought to be a friend of Tan's son and appears to have no previous experience in football.

He joined the club in February but his name does not appear on a list of key staff members on the club's official website.

Tan previously caused consternation among Bluebirds' fans by changing the club's playing kit from blue to red and heavily altering their crest in 2012.

The club have yet to comment on the reasons for Moody's removal, although it is believed Tan felt the club had overspent during the summer transfer window.

The Cardiff City Supporters' Trust has expressed its concern the club could lose their highly-rated and popular Scottish boss.
