THE OWNER VINCENT TAN OVERSEAS EVERYTHING & HAS THE FINAL DECISION ON EVERYTHING

By Tom Coleman

Wednesday 13th September 2019


The key men behind the transfer dealings are executive chairman Mehmet Dalman and executive director and CEO Ken Choo .

These are the two who harbour much control over the purse strings and are largely responsible for communication with Warnock over transfer strategy.

In a recent interview, Dalman said City spent nigh on £20m in this most recent transfer window and believes the money currently being thrown about in the Championship is "silly", but is insistent the Bluebirds can keep pace with most teams in the division.


Steve Borley is an executive director at Cardiff City. Borley is a managing director of Cardiff-based engineering company CMB Engineering and was a key player in the construction of Cardiff City House of Sport.

And then there are the non-executive board members. There is Cardiff-born entrepreneur Datuk Marco Ronaldo Mario Caramella , whose primary task is to bridge the Bluebirds and his country of residence, Malaysia, 61-year-old Malaysian Derek Chee Seng Chin and Ronald Issen , who also presides on the board of City's sister club KV Kortrijk in Belgium.

FOOTBALL

So, on the pitch and the training ground, the operation is obviously headed by manager Neil Warnock . The Bluebirds boss is hoping to earn his ninth career promotion this term and has a host of trusted lieutenants hoping to make that happen.

Assistant manager Kevin Blackwell and first-team coach Ronnie Jepson are permanent fixtures on the sidelines and in the dugout alongside Warnock, while coach James Rowberry and goalkeeping coach Andy Dibble also play major roles in first-team proceedings.

Helping to supplement the talent currently on show in the Welsh capital is Glyn Chamberlain , who is the club's chief scout and plays a major role on the recruitment side of things. He joined the club in February 2017, shortly after Warnock arrived, after undertaking a similar role at Burnley for four years.

As is the modern way, the Bluebirds are well stocked with eagle-eyed analysts who are tasked with fine tuning the team's preparation as well as offering insight from the stands during the game. Jack Radusin, Patrick Deboys and Josh Morris are the men behind the analysis.



No backroom staff is complete without the medical and fitness entourage. Matthew May heads up the medical services, while club doctor Len Nokes plays a key role when it comes to player welfare, so much so that he won the Outstanding Contribution Award when the Bluebirds were promoted in the 2017-18 season.

Then there is the physio team. James Rowland is the club's senior physiotherapist alongside first-team physio Adrian Littlejohn , while Luke Walker is employed as the soft tissue specialist, all of whom are vital for the players' rehabilitation.

And when it comes to getting the players to their peak, look no further than fitness and conditioning duo Carl Serrant and Lee Southernwood who both work closely with strength and conditioning coach Mike Beere and sports scientist Ben Parry .

Kit manager Paul Carter and groundsman Roy Evans both undertake important roles at Cardiff City Stadium, while football management PA Victoria McCracken ensures the whole operation runs smoothly.

YOUTH

At the top of the youth set-up is academy manager James McCarthy, who has been involved with the club for 19 years this month. He became an academy coach in September 2000 before being elevated to assistant academy manager in 2013. Just a year later he took the top job.

With regards to the age-grade sides, Jarred Harvey and Andy Legg are the men tasked with leading the under-23 development squad while Matthew Bloxham has the duties for the under-18 team after Craig Bellamy this summer left to link up with former Manchester City team-mate Vincent Kompany and become Anderlecht Under-21s boss.

Head of coaching Tom Ramasut , academy operations manager Gavin Reen and education and welfare manager Steve Ellis also play pivotal roles with the next generation.

It is also understood that goalkeeper Brian Murphy , who recently signed a four-month deal with the club, is helping out with the keepers in the academy.

In the more formative years of promising talent, Dane Facey (ages 12-16) and Lawrence Hallett (ages 9-11) take charge of the coaching.
