Former Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay said on Friday he was sorry for sending offensive text messages and the League Managers Association apologized for the wording of a statement issued in response.

Cardiff was not satisfied by the LMA’s reaction, calling for the resignation of the organization’s chief executive Richard Bevan and accusing the body of trying to conceal the messages.

“I sincerely apologize. It was something I did, and there’s no excuse for that,” Mackay said.

“It was in a period (when) I was under immense pressure and stress in terms of the relationships that were possibly not going too well at my football club at the time.”
