Slade deserving of opportunity at Cardiff, says Millwall boss

IAN Holloway believes new Cardiff City boss Russell Slade will have to manage upwards if he is to be successful at the Welsh club.

But Holloway is glad to see Slade being given a chance at a Championship side, having led Leyton Orient to last season's League One play-off final on a shoestring budget.

The Bluebirds are owned by controversial Malaysian billionaire Vincent Tan.

Slade, who brings Cardiff to The Den this weekend, has won his first two games in charge.

"He's made a good start and he had to because the bloke he works for is very expectant and so is their crowd," said Holloway.

"Good luck to him and it's nice to see someone who hasn't been at this level before get a chance and he deserves it because he's a wonderful fella.

"I hope he learns to manage all his players downwards and the people above him.

"Cardiff look a really good team. They've got a decent strikeforce and a huge squad – if you look at who Russell isn't using and isn't playing, it's scary."

    Any manager that steps up deserves respect. Just think that with a director who really, really thinks that by changing the shirt colours that Cardiff are going to be the new Man Utd is off his rocker. This is the type of w***** who because he's got money will do his best to take our game away from us . Same as that t***** at Hull who wants to change their name.
    Thank god we're Millwall - from the CEO to the loyal band of supporters that are what we are.
    F*** the rest.
