Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been promised long-term support from chairman Mehmet Dalman.

Solskjaer has only been in charge of the Welsh side since the beginning of January and has had a tough start to life in the Premier League.

The Bluebirds beat Newcastle 2-1 in the FA Cup in Solskjaer's first game but they have failed to win any league games since he took over.

His side were beaten by West Ham and Manchester City in their last two fixtures, but Chairman Mehmet Dalman has given the Norwegian his full backing and is enjoying the way Cardiff are now playing.

Dalman told Sky Sports: "What I really saw of him was the style of football. If you look at what he has done in Norway, that style of football is very impressive. I hope to build a long-term future with him here.

"Over the next five years I think you will see a lot of Solskjaer. This is a great place for him to build his credibility.

"Secondly, he is a very ambitious young man. He wants to make it to the very top of his profession. And he would see this as a very good stepping stone to getting there."

The former Manchester United player had success in Norway with Molde, winning the Norwegian Premier League in 2011 and 2012 and the Norwegian football cup in 2013.

Taking charge of Cardiff is a completely different task altogether though, with the newly promoted side currently bottom of the Premier League and facing a relegation battle.

Cardiff have key matches coming up as they face four teams in the bottom half of the table within the next five games.
