Manager Profile

Neil Warnock was appointed Cardiff City manager in October 2016. Fast-forward to May 2018 and he'd won a record eighth promotion, which he described as his greatest achievement.

After an eleven year playing career where he made over 300 league appearances for a variety of clubs, Warnock moved into management in 1980 with non-league side Gainsborough Trinity. His first major success came with Scarborough when he won them promotion to the Football League.

Neil Warnock most recently returned to the managerial arena on 11th February (2016) with Championship outfit Rotherham United. The veteran gaffer signed a short-term contract with the Millers until the end of the season, and went on to keep the club in the second-tier.

Neil Warnock Quotes

I used the Olympics in my team talk. When i went to bed, Kelly Holmes turned me on, which is sad for me isn't it? But when I watched Kelly and the relay lads, their ambition was to aim for the top. Now I think I have a group of lads who should look at themselves and also aim for the top.

The two managers I really dislike are Stan Ternent and Gary Megson. The old saying that I wouldn't p**s on them if they were on fire applies.

I don't think there is anybody else who can touch me at this level (Championship). My record is as good as anybody's.

The Sack Race's Opinion

One of the most colourful characters in the game, Warnock has proven time and time again that he is more than capable of steering a club to safety, which he will look to achieve with new club Cardiff.
