Neil Warnock Doesn’t Fear the Sack Because There Aren’t “Many Good Managers Around”

Neil Warnock Doesn’t Fear the Sack Because There Aren’t “Many Good Managers Around”

Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock claims he’s in the unique position that if he went for another job, he would get it because there aren’t many “good managers” around.

Warnock took over at the Cardiff City Stadium in October, following the dismissal of Paul Trollope, with the club second bottom of the table after two wins from 11 games.

However Warnock has turned the Bluebirds around in just five months, with Cardiff now 13th in the Championship.

And Cardiff’s form clearly has Warnock feeling very bullish, as he told BBC Radio Wales Sport, “I’m in a unique situation for a manager because I’m not bothered if I get the sack – they can sack me tomorrow if they want.”

The 68-year-old added, “If I want another job, I can get another job. That’s not being conceited, I just don’t see many good managers around.”

The former Sheffield United boss also spoke about Warren Joyce, who parted company with Wigan yesterday after just four months.

Warnock said, “No disrespect but when Wigan appointed him, I was delighted.

“I didn’t think they were going to be a threat to us.”

Big talk from Warnock, is he right?

Or are there plenty of good coaches and managers out there who can do a decent job?
