VIDEO: Solskjaer in heated exchange with journalist

Cardiff City manager gets heated with a journalist over questions regarding leaked team

Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refused to be drawn on questions regarding the leak of team information against Crystal Palace last week.

Palace are thought to have gained information with regards to Cardiff's starting line-up in last weeks six-pointer, with Cardiff having sacked a member of staff and warned another in wake of the allegations.

Cardiff were thumped 3-0 by Palace on Saturday, a defeat that puts their Premier League survival bid in serious jeopardy.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to answer questions on the scandal, saying he would rather the Chairman Mehmet Dalman be quizzed on the matter.

"You will have to ask the Chairman." Solskjaer said.

“I have absolutely no reason to doubt the professionalism, honesty, integrity or loyalty of any player."

Cardiff club captain Steven Caulker has also come out in wake of the rumours of leaked information, claiming that leaks within the club have been going on all season.

"To be honest with you, there have been problems like that all season where certain things have been leaked," Caulker said.

"It has obviously come from somewhere. That's down to the gaffer and the staff above him to sort stuff out, and we can just focus on playing football.

"You have a bit of banter with your ex-team-mates and friends in football. Until the Premier League have investigated it and got to the bottom of it, I certainly won't be pointing any fingers.”

Cardiff sit 19th in the Premier League, six points adrift of 17th placed Norwich City. The Bluebirds have just five games remaining to try and save their Premier League status, starting with a visit to Southampton this afternoon.

City then face Stoke in the Welsh capital, before two trips up North to face Sunderland and Newcastle, and then return home to face title contenders Chelsea on the final day of the season.
