Cardiff City boss Malkay Mackay has stated he isn't phased by rumours linking Yilmaz Vural with the future Cardiff City job, according to the Guardian.
The Bluebirds sit 15th in the Premier League, having only won one of their last five matches, but last week grabbed a valuable point against Manchester United at home.
However with Cardiff being stable in the English league, Mackay's job is under threat, as Turkish manager Yilmaz Vural has been linked with the Cardiff City job.
But Mackay has stated he isn't worried about these rumours, as he's only focused on the job at hand.
"It doesn't concern me in the slightest. I have a job to do for Cardiff City and I am focused on that. My responsibility is to my team."
The man in line for the job is Vural, a Turkish coach who has managed a staggering 22 teams in the matter of 27 years. The longest spell the 60-year-old has had with a one team is two years.
But Mackay is focused on the games ahead, as the Welsh team's next match is against Arsenal, followed by busy December with encounters against Crystal Palace, Liverpool and Southampton. The 41-year-old continued to state that he is pleased with his players, as that's who states he is most proud of.
"My players have put in a huge amount of effort for Cardiff City over the last two years. We showed against Manchester United our never say die attitude and fitness levels. I am proud of them."
Vural, meanwhile, has confirmed he has been linked with the club and been in contact, but advises there are other clubs in his radar as well, not just the Welsh team.
"It wouldn't be right to say anything while Cardiff City have a manager, but we have been in contact. I have also been approached by other clubs. It is now a case of waiting."
