Last updated : 04 January 2014 By Michael Morris

The last couple of weeks have seen reports of leaked emails making Malky Mackay's position untenable which ultimately led to his dismissal.

The world's media have given Cardiff a virtual kicking and that has been acknowledged by the club.

"I hope you'll forgive us for that and put some trust in us to build this club to what I think it can be built into," said Dalman.

"This club has huge potential but it all has to start at the football pitch. So less noise about non-football and a lot of noise on the football pitch.

"I sincerely apologise for that because that was never our intention."
