Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay has reiterated that he is ready to spend the £25m at his disposal following the club’s return to the Premier League.

Mackay has begun his planning for life in the Premier League after a 0-0 draw with Charlton Athletic on Tuesday ensured the club will be playing top-flight football next season.

Mackay told reporters that he feels that the time is right for Cardiff to enter the big-time, after all of the time he has spent rebuilding the club.

“We’re going to plan properly and that’s started already and we’ll now put that plan into action,” said the Cardiff manager.

“We’ll also make sure that the departments we’ve opened up at the football club and the structure we’ve implemented keeps striving forward. Change is constant and if you don’t go with it, you’re left behind,” added the boss.

Cardiff will be preparing for life in the Premier League after failing to reach the top-flight three seasons in a row, despite finishing in the play-offs. In the 2009-2010 season Cardiff lost against Blackpool 3-2 at Wembley despite beating Leicester City in the play-off semi-finals. 

It was a similar situation in the following season, but in the 2010-2011 season the club fell at the first hurdle, losing 3-0 to Reading in the play-off semi-finals. 

Last season it was even worse for Cardiff, as they lost in the semi-finals once again, this time 5-0 to West Ham United. So this season, automatic promotion will be a great relief for the long-suffering fans of Cardiff City.
