Cardiff reveal Warnock to stay-on as manager

Neil Warnock will remain as Cardiff boss next season, the Championship club have confirmed.

The 68-year-old's current deal was set to expire at the end of this campaign.

The Welsh club revealed the news with a post on their official Twitter page on Friday morning which read: "Neil Warnock confirms that he will be #Bluebirds manager next season following positive talks."

"I am pleased to say we have agreed everything," Warnock said at a press conference.

"I have not put pen to paper, but we have agreed an extension for next season.

"We are all signing for the same hymn sheet. We all want to do well.

"There are no guarantees, you have just got to look at (sacked Leicester manager) Claudio Ranieri.

"My objective is just to be as popular with Cardiff City fans in 12 months' time as I am now.

"The contract was never in doubt, I just didn't want to come for the wrong reasons. Vincent Tan and Mehmet Dalman have been nothing but supportive from the start."

Warnock added: "'We wanted to stay, they wanted us to stay, we wanted an opportunity to do well next season, they've given us that.

"Now we want to try and put the club in a place where we will be strong enough next season to have a go.

"We'll be up against big budgets so we'll have to be very good at what we do all over the club to give us a chance to get successful."

Warnock did not rule out further extending his stay, but will take things one season at a time.

He added: "I will be here as long as the fans want me, because then I think I will be doing a good job.

"At the moment we just have to plan for next season, give it a go and see where we are really."
