The Daily Mail has uncovered a shocking slew of offensive text messages that are said to have been sent between former Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay and the Welsh side’s former head of recruitment Iain Moody.

It has transpired that the content of these messages led to Crystal Palace ending their interest in appointing the Scottish manager as a replacement for Tony Pulis.

The FA had been carrying out an investigation eight controversial transfers that took place during Moody’s time at the club and the law firm hired by the governing body, Mishcon de Reya, had secured a search order from the High Court to enter Moody’s house in, seizing computers and phones.

During this process a series of hugely offensive messages were unearthed.

In July 2012, Cardiff signed South Korean international Kim Bo-kyung, but when Moody informed Mackay on July 12 that ‘five of the b******s including the player’ were arriving for talks, the reply from Mackay’s phone was: ‘Fkn chinkys.’

A further message says: ‘Fk it. There’s enough dogs in Cardiff for us all to go around.’

In reference to the prominent football agent, Phil Smith, a text states: ‘Go on, fat Phil. Nothing like a Jew that sees money slipping through his fingers’. The Israeli club, Maccabi Tel Aviv, are also referred to simply as ‘the Jews’.

A football official at another club is referred to as ‘a gay snake’ and ‘the homo’ and someone who is ‘not to be trusted’, while a French player is someone ‘who struck me as an independently minded young homo’.

An exchange with a young player who has a female agent makes reference to a sex act and states: ‘I hope she’s looking after your needs,’ the player is then told. ‘I bet you’d love a bounce on her falsies.’

On August 16, 2012, a list of players proposed by a French agent is forwarded, stating to Mackay that ‘he needs to rename his agency the All Blacks’. A separate text in reference to a list of French players states: ‘Not many white faces amongst that lot but worth considering.’

In a separate exchange a picture entitled ‘Black Monopoly’ is sent, with every square a ‘Go To Jail’ square. Of one African player, it is stated: ‘Doesn’t look like a good cv. And he’s Nigerian.’

Among the transfers being investigated is the £2.25m signing of Nigerian international Peter Odemwingie and agent fees related to the deal.

One imagines Mackay may well be in hot water, so to Moody, and the former Celtic defender may struggle to find a job in the game anytime soon.
