Ex-Millwall assistant David Livermore will join the club as Harris’ assistant, while coaches Andy Dibble and James Rowberry will remain at the club.

Harris’ first match in charge will be a trip to Charlton Athletic on Saturday 23 and he will make his home debut three days later when the Bluebirds host Stoke City.

Harris, who resigned as Millwall manager last month, will take charge of his first game on November 23 when Cardiff travel to Charlton.

Harris takes over with Cardiff in 14th place in the Championship following their Premier League relegation last season.

Owner Vincent Tan said in a statement: “I am pleased to appoint Neil as first team manager of the club.


“I have full confidence in Neil due to his principles on and off the pitch and enthusiasm to succeed. I am glad to offer him this opportunity and look forward to seeing what he is capable of achieving with Cardiff City.”

Chairman Mehmet Dalman added: “Neil is a passionate manager who has all of the right attributes to take the helm at Cardiff City.

“I know he’s eager to get to work and we look forward to seeing him strive to get the best out of our tight-knit and talented group of players.”
