Cardiff City sack head coach Paul Trollope

Relegation threatened SkyBet Championship club Cardiff City have sacked head coach Paul Trollope after a poor run of results according to BBC Sport.

The 44 year old leaves the Cardiff City Stadium after just four and a half months in charge of The Bluebirds with the club sitting in 23rd place in the SkyBet Championship table. Trollope’s assistant Lennie Lawrence and performance director Ryland Morgans have also left the South Wales club.

Cardiff City have suffered a truly dismal start to the new campaign winning just two of their 11 league matches. The Bluebirds have lost six of their last seven and Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at SkyBet Championship new boys Burton Albion proved to be the final straw for owner Vincent Tan who has little patience when it comes to under-performing Cardiff City managers.

Trollope’s two wins in 12 matches in all competitions sees him leave the club with a win percentage of just 16.7%. The relatively inexperienced coach replaced former Bluebirds boss Russell Slade in the managerial hot seat back in May but his only previous managerial experience prior to his spell at the Cardiff City Stadium was a long period in charge of Bristol Rovers between 2005-2010.

Cardiff City are next in action on 14 October when bitter rivals Bristol City are the visitors to South Wales.
