Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan is well-known as one of the biggest characters in football.
He has been behind some unpopular decisions, most notably changing the club’s home kit from blue to red.

Gabbidon claimed that, having seen Mark Hudson score from the halfway line against Derby County, Tan recommended Bluebirds defenders attempt to repeat the trick.
Football isn’t that straightforward, Vincent. Don’t you think everyone would be trying it otherwise.
