Championship news: Russell Slade leaves Cardiff City after less than one month in new head of football role

Russell Slade has left his position as Cardiff’s head of football with immediate effect after less than a month in the role.

The 55-year-old was removed as manager in May to take the new position in a backroom re-shuffle at the Cardiff City Stadium, which was followed by the appointment of Paul Trollope as the club’s new head coach.

Slade joined the Bluebirds as manager in October 2014 when he replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, moving from League One Leyton Orient.

He guided the Welsh outfit to an 11th and eighth place finish in the Championship in his two seasons in charge before being moved upstairs.

Slade counts Scarborough, Grimsby, Yeovil and Brighton as former teams he has managed before joining Orient in 2010.

He has been linked with the vacant manager’s position at Charlton, according to reports.
