Neil Harris is the new Cardiff City manager – and his first game in charge will be at Charlton Athletic.
The former Millwall boss, who stepped down from his role with the South London club at the start of November, has signed a contract until the summer of 2022.
David Livermore, who had been Harris’s number two at the Den, will be his assistant.
Harris will oversee training on Monday and be at the helm for Saturday’s fixture at The Valley.
Cardiff owner Vincent Tan said: “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 said: “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.”
