Warnock: "It's lovely to see a following and performance like that"


Neil Warnock spoke at Old Trafford following the Bluebirds' 2-0 away win against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

The Bluebirds' famous victory at Old Trafford came thanks to a brace from Nathaniel Mendez-Laing in their final match of the 2018/19 season. Warnock discussed his side's performance follwing the final whistle.

"I thought we did really well," began Neil. "I said to them before the game that it's my last game in the Premier League and it might be some of theirs, and I wanted everyone to play to their absolute maximum and give them a good game.

"I always thought that our front four would cause them problems, and I thought we did. In fact, I think that if we'd been a little more confident with the final pass then we could have scored a few more if I'm honest.

"We worked really hard at trying to shut their strengths out at trying to give our strengths a bit of a go. I think people would have thought that we'd come and sit back, but we didn't want to do that.

"I said let's have a go at them. Our front four could have a go against anyone in the league when they play like that."

The Gaffer once again praised the fans for their constant support throughout Sunday's match, as well as the season as a whole. Despite being relegated from the Premier League last week, the Cardiff City faithful showed up in their thousands at Old Trafford to loudly cheer on their side for one last time to close off the 2018/19 season.

"You saw the fans, they've been amazing really. I've never seen it like this. Last week having just been relegated, there are not many managers who get chanted like that, it was quite emotional.

"But that's where we are now. I think they remember where we were two and a half years ago. It's lovely to see a following and performance like that, at the end of the hardest season that I've ever had in the game."

"We've got thousands of fans going home as happy as they've ever been."
