For the past few weeks, English football has been undergoing a series of corruption allegations which has even led to Sam Allardyce being removed from his managerial position in the English national football team.
Barnsley FC also had to remove their assistant head coach Tommy Wright as it was believed that he had taken payments in order to arrange for Barnsley to purchase part-owned players from a non-existent Far East firm.
Tommy Wright was initially suspended but after more investigations were done and everything appeared to have been indeed true, Wright was sacked a few days later.
Neil Warnock of Cardiff City is the latest figure of English football that has been involved with corruption scandals. These claims were made by Jason Puncheon who has worked alongside Neil Warnock in the Premier League a few years ago with Queens Park Rangers and with Crystal Palace.
Jason Puncheon recently released messages through his twitter account where he accused Warnock of doing things that are considered to be as dishonest and related to corruption.
Warnock responded by saying that all of these accusations of Puncheon were complete and utterly falseand it was later stated that the FA Commission had considered all of the messages and statements which were released by Puncheon to be unfounded without any real evidence.
Warnock said: “These allegations are completely and utterly false.The FA Commission considered all of the evidence in detail in 2014 and it found that the allegations which were published about me were unfounded. Any suggestion that the FA failed to investigate this matter is simply untrue’’

Cardiff City football club manager, Russell Slade, is unsure of his future as his side missed out on the Championship play-offs.
The Bluebirds lost by three nil at Sheffield Wednesday this past weekend leaving them seven points adrift of the top six with one game left in the season.
The current contract of the coach is due to lapse at the end of this campaign but when asked if he expects to be in charge next season, Slade told BBC Sport
“We’ll see. At the end of the day, it will be the owners’ decision.”
The coach may have overseen an unlikely Championship play-off this season but the truth is Slade has not been accepted by some Cardiff fans. Gary Hooper scored two goals as Sheffield Wednesday sealed their play-off place at their expense. The former Leyton Orient boss said:
“We’ve made progress. It’s my job, the team’s job and the staff’s job now to see if we can take that even further.
“We’ve made progress under difficult circumstances at times. We are going the right way.
“We had a bad day at the office today. We have to get over that. They always happen in football – it’s how you respond and react.
“I still believed we could get in that top six today and take it to the last game. Anything could’ve happened, but it’s not to be.”
He also added that their poor away record affected them this season but hopes they win their last game. He said:

Cardiff City managed a third win in the last five matches after a 2-0 success over Birmingham City during the weekend.
The victory helped Cardiff move to 14th in the table. It makes them no closer towards the play-off places, as Ipswich Town occupying the final play-off spot are still 16 points ahead of them with one less match remaining in the season. Despite this, manager Russell Slade was happy with the performance of his players after the match. Owen Doyle opened the scoring after 15 minutes while Peter Whittingham scored from the penalty spot after 76 minutes.
Assistant manager Scott Young also reflected on this victory by saying that it was pleasing to get a clean sheet. Cardiff have not enjoyed a great defensive record in the league this season. Their last clean sheet came almost a month ago in the 1-0 victory over Wigan. Comments to such a situation have been flying in from the fans, but Slade will be able to prepare with confidence for the next match against Reading. The relegation threatened outfit still have everything to play for in the remainder of the campaign unlike Cardiff, who may allow their concentration to drift. There are seven matches left in the season.
