Vincent Tan: Cardiff City owner celebrates promotion to the Premier League

The Welsh club clinched a place in the top flight on Tuesday night for the first time in 51 years following a 0-0 home draw with Charlton Athletic.

Malaysian businessman Tan, who has injected over £60m into the club, is delighted with the achievement and will now plan the way forward with Mackay.

"It's a great feeling," Tan told Sky Sports News. "It's about time right for Cardiff City?

"I think we have to strategise how we stay there for a long, long time. We have to do a lot of thinking.

"Hopefully we don't have to spend too much, but Cardiff have waited for 51 years, so this great. I'm very happy that Malaysia helps to contribute to this.

"I think Malky is a fantastic manager. We work along very well and we have a great working relationship.

"I've a lot of respect for him and he has a lot of respect for me. It's a great mutual relationship."

Tan caused controversy last summer when he changed Cardiff's home colours from blue to red, but after the club endured several near misses in the bid for promotion he said: "Lucky red, you know."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
