Lamouchi appointed new Cardiff manager; Bamba named assistant

Sabri Lamouchi has been appointed as the new manager of Cardiff City.

The 51-year-old former France international - who was in charge of Nottingham Forest between June 2019 and October 2020 - has signed a deal to replace Mark Hudson, who was sacked on January 14 after just 18 games in charge

Ex-Cardiff defender and cult hero Sol Bamba has been named as his assistant. Lamouchi coached Bamba, 38, during his time as manager of the Ivory Coast national team between 2012 and 2014.

First team coach Dean Whitehead had taken charge while a search for Hudson's successor was conducted, with the former Sunderland and Stoke midfielder overseeing a 1-0 loss to Millwall in the league and a 5-2 defeat to Leeds in the FA Cup third round replay.

Whitehead will remain at the club under the new regime, as will coach Tom Ramasut and goalkeeping coach Graham Stack.
