Warnock sets sights on Cardiff City promotion bid

Neil Warnock admits he would relish the chance of extending his stay at Cardiff City, as he sets his sights on a promotion bid next season.

The 68-year-old was appointed Bluebirds boss on a short-term contract back in October, at a time when they were second-bottom of the Championship table. And although they aren’t entirely safe of relegation, they have certainly improved under his stewardship and they are now in 16th position and eight points clear of the drop zone.

Speaking following the 2-1 defeat at Reading, which was their second successive defeat, Warnock admits that he would be interested in extending his stay at the Welsh club. Indeed, the experienced manager has also revealed he has spoken with owner Vincent Tan, as he sets his sights on next season and an eighth career promotion.

“I’d like to get promotion next season,” he said. “I’m working hard to show the club what I can do. I’ve met the owner [Vincent Tan] and everybody else. Everything is very positive. I’ve told them in detail what I think we need, I gave them an in-depth look into my thoughts this week.

“And I’m sure they’re going to come back and let me know if it’s possible. It’s a great club and I think we’re showing them we know what we’re doing. I don’t want to pick up money without a chance of promotion. They know that and we get on really well. Vincent is very supportive.”
