Vincent Tan and Macky Mackay: Happier days at Cardiff for duo

However, the Scot, who was controversially sacked by the Bluebirds last month following a long-standing dispute with club owner Vincent Tan, has warned Norwegian Solskjaer that managing in the Premier League is a "culture shock".

Solskjaer left Norwegian side Molde to join Cardiff earlier this month and oversaw an FA Cup win at Newcastle in his first match in charge.

"I think it's a great job for him, coming from Norwegian football into the Premier League and into the club that has got the structure it has," said Mackay.

"There's a lot of good staff that work at that football club.

"He's got a decent training ground, 30,000 people (who) want to come to the games every week and a team that are absolutely competitive and going to have a chance of staying up.

"I think he's a decent appointment because he's done well. He's been in the Premier League and he's done well in Norway."

But he added: "It's going to be different and there's a culture shock to it as well."

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
