Cardiff boss Warnock has no doubts about potential of Bacuna

Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock has no doubts about the potential of Leandro Bacuna.

Warnock says he's confident that Bacuna can step up to fill in the void left by Aron Gunnarsson at the end of the season. Gunnarsson is set to leave on a free transfer this summer, having signed a deal with Qatari side Al Arabi.

After last week's win at Brighton, Warnock said: "Even Bacuna when he came on. I said to Gunnarsson after the game 'Wow. Why didn't you go off earlier?'

"Bacuna was like Pogba when he came on, and I thought thank goodness you're leaving at the end of the season and we've got him. We had a good laugh about that.

"Everybody wants to be involved. You wouldn't think we were fighting relegation really."
