PETALING JAYA: English club Cardiff City have made changes in the dugout to replace manager Russell Slade as he was promoted to head of football at the club.
Slade will be in charge for the last time from the sidelines against Birmingham on Saturday.
Welsh news portal www.walesonline.co.uk reported the decision come following talks between the manager and owner Tan Sri Vincent Tan on Friday, which were followed by a board meeting between the club's directors.
Said Vincent in a statement: "I'd like to thank Russell for his efforts since his appointment here in October 2014.
"Since then, we have seen stabilisation and progression both on and off the field. Crucially, he is a man who I have been able to trust."
Former Cardiff striker Craig Bellamy has been touted as favourite to succeed Russell.
