It has been revealed recently that Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock could be set to retire from management come the end of his time with the Bluebirds.
On Saturday against Brighton, Warnock will have completed 100 games in charge of the Welsh side, but he has admitted that Glenn Hoddle’s recent heart attack and the helicopter crash at Leicester City last month had affected him and made his re-evaluate his future.

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.
