Cardiff City manager considering quitting the club at the end of the season

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock is reportedly considering quitting the club at the end of the current season.

The Bluebirds are in a relegation battle with Burnley, Southampton and Brighton & Hove Albion to stay in the Premier League but are 5 points off safety, but the Saints and Seagulls have a game in hand over them and the Clarets.

In November against Brighton, Warnock completed 100 games in charge of the Welsh side, but he admitted that Glenn Hoddle’s heart attack and the helicopter crash at Leicester City had affected him and made his re-evaluate his future. No doubt the struggles to keep Cardiff up and the sad death of new signing Emiliano Sala when the helicopter went missing have also slightly added in making the 70 year old’s mind up too.

As quoted by Sports Mole, he said: “You see what happened at Leicester and with Glenn, who I think is a fantastic guy, and it brings it home to you that life is on a thread,” said Warnock, who turns 70 in December and is the second oldest manager in the top four divisions of English football behind Crystal Palace’s Roy Hodgson.

“It’s been one of the happiest times of my life (at Cardiff). Having thought about retiring two or three times, I’m really glad that I didn’t.

“I do feel better for doing what I’ve done here and I don’t think my job’s finished yet.

“But I think another 100 games might be difficult.

“We’ll see how things go this season. There comes a time where I want to see one or two places I haven’t seen before.”

Warnock’s contracted is to end at the end of next season.

He has also said that he looks at Cardiff as his farewell club and doesn’t think he’ll be heading to another club afterwards.
