Cardiff City: Vincent Tan's 5 Most Outrageous Moments

Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan is not a popular character.

Named recently as the “worst owner in sports” by American newspaper USA Today, Tan is currently public enemy No. 1 in Wales and considered one of the true villains of football.

The reasons for this vary.

Whether he's booing his own team, changing the "Bluebirds" kit colour to RED or questioning his goalkeeper's goalscoring rate, the madcap Malaysian has never been too far away from controversy since taking charge of Cardiff in 2010.

No more so than this month, after he ordered likable manager Malky Mackay to hand in his resignation or be sacked for having the audacity to seek transfer funds in the upcoming January transfer window.

Fans took to the streets in protest and let their feelings be known from the terraces but it was to no avail as Mackay was eventually axed on December 27, leaving the Premier League strugglers manager-less.

Yet Tan's crazed actions don't end there, and here, B/R highlights the billionaire's 5 Most Outrageous Moments.
