Neil effusive in praise for Owner after agreeing to extend time at CCS...

Bluebirds Boss Neil Warnock spoke with pride about his relationship with Tan Sri Vincent Tan and the Cardiff City Board, having announced that he would be staying at Cardiff City FC beyond the current season.

Citing trust and communication as key, the Manager praised the Club for acting quickly so as to ensure stability moving forward.

In an historic interview that you can watch in full now on Cardiff City Player HD, he began: “Vincent has been nothing but supportive to me right from the start. I’m hopefully going to go over to Malaysia to see him again at the end of the season.

“I can’t thank him enough for that support – the same for Mehmet Dalman and Ken Choo. They couldn’t have acted any quicker to get this sorted.

“I’ve enjoyed working with them and I’m looking forward to continuing working with them in the future. 

“You want to work somewhere that makes you smile; I feel I’ll be here as long as I’m wanted."

With thirteen games of the current Sky Bet Championship season remaining, the Bluebirds find themselves in twelfth place on forty-five points - a significant rise from the eight points accumulated at the time Neil took over back in October.

And on the back of three straight victories ahead of Saturday’s visit of Fulham(TICKETS HERE), the Manager feels that everything is in place to finish 2016/17 strongly and move with gusto into the new campaign.

“We’re all singing from the same hymn sheet here and it's about trust,” he continued. 

“Vincent, Mehmet, Ken and I all want the same thing – we want Cardiff City Football Club to do well moving forward.

“We’re going to give it a real try next year. We’ll be up against some big clubs with big budgets so it’ll mean we’re going to need all parts of the Club to come together to put us in a position to give it a go. 

"I’ll have to do some juggling when it comes to the wage structure of course, to ensure that we can make that work.

“Being a football manager can be lonely at times. But I’ve never felt lonely here – I’ve had nothing but support. It’s lovely to be able to put smiles on faces as well.

“I don’t think I’ve felt this excited about a task ahead of me in many years.”
