Malaysian Tan may face investigation over Cardiff City bonus
(03-04 16:31)

Struggling football club Cardiff City face a Premier League investigation after Malaysian owner Vincent Tan (Pictured) offered players a £3.7 million bonus before Sunday's loss against Tottenham, a media report said in London.
Cardiff languish at second bottom of the Premier League.
Tan sacked manager Malky Mackay this season, triggering condemnation from fans. Cardiff supporters have also continued to deplore Tan’s decision to change the Bluebirds’ colors to red.
But Tan has said criticism in the British media are “a little bit racist and unfair.’’
The Daily Mail reported that Tan had breached league rules to declare the bonus schedule before the season begins.
Tan did not offer the Cardiff squad a bonus to avoid relegation before the campaign began because he did not believe they would be in a relegation fight after his significant investment, the paper said.
The controversial Malaysian owner of the club had stunned the players with his extraordinary offer on Saturday at the team hotel and pledged £3.7 million to share between them if they survived their first season in the Premier League.
The Premier League are to investigate the Cardiff owner after sources close to Tan confirmed he had made the offer to his players, the paper said.
