Cardiff have appointed head coach Paul Trollope as Russell Slade's successor.

The Sky Bet Championship club unveiled the former Wales midfielder at a press conference on Wednesday.

Slade was removed as manager at the end of the season and has taken up a new role as head of football.

Trollope, 43, had been part of Slade's coaching team since February 2015 and has also been a member of Chris Coleman's Wales backroom staff.

The former Bristol Rovers manager said it was a "no-brainer" to accept owner Vincent Tan's offer to manage a club which finished eighth in the Championship last season.

Malaysian businessman Tan has often been accused of interference in team affairs, but Trollope promised he would do the job his way.

"I'm honoured to get this position, it's a good challenge and one I'm looking forward to getting started with," Trollope said.

"It's a good club with a good fan base and nice facilities and stadium - and it was an absolute no-brainer to do the job.

"Every coach and manager has got their own philosophies, their own way of playing, handling players and preparation.

"I'll bring my own style to that, and anyone who knows me knows that I've got clear ideas of the way things should be on and off the pitch at a football club."
