‘I was not ready’ for Cardiff City comeback

Cardiff City are in danger of missing out on the Premier League title as the hosts struggle to find their form after a three-game losing streak.

The Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust is holding a rally in Cardiff on Monday to show their support for the club and manager Nick Pompey, who was sacked on Saturday following the 4-1 defeat by Manchester City at the Liberty Stadium.

Pompey was sacked after a 3-1 loss at home to Everton on Saturday and his side have since drawn five of their last seven games, despite being in 11th place in the table.

Pochettino, who took over the club from Steve Bruce at the end of last season, was criticised for failing to strengthen the squad ahead of next season and there has been talk of a potential sale of the club.

He was sacked in July after the Championship club missed out on qualification for the Champions League group stages by a single point.

The club are bottom of the table with six points from their last six matches.

Pomey will be joined by members of the City Supporters Trust, including Cardiff City’s director of football, Lee Dixon, and club president John Barchard.

Former Blues midfielder Jonny Evans was also on hand at the rally to call for Pompey to be reinstated.

“It’s really hard not to be supportive of Nick Pompeys footballing record and the record of his club,” Evans told BBC Sport.

“But we are in the Champions league, we are winning games.

We are in a position where we are playing Champions League football, we have the potential to be in the top four and there is so much more to come.”

He needs to stay at Cardiff City and get back to his best.

It’s hard not be supportive when we know he can’t get back in there.

It just doesn’t feel right.

“Pompley’s first win against Manchester City in Cardiff was his second of the season, but he has struggled for form since taking over in July.

He has only managed three points from his last six league games, with a 2-1 win over West Brom on Sunday.

The Welsh club have won three of their four league games against their Premier League rivals, but the visitors are also six points adrift of the top five.
