Danny Ward discloses that Neil Warnock was the reason why he preferred Cardiff over Ipswich.
As per Ward, his experience of playing under Warnock was fantastic when he was given the charge of Rotherham on an interim basis in 2016. The 69-year old had done some wonderful work coming in at a difficult time and had managed to avoid Rotherham’s relegation from the second tier which was looking certain at one point of time. And not only him, but, his associates as well, they were mighty impressive as a coaching staff.
Also when he talked to some of the players in the Cardiff City squad whom he knows personally and is close to, they all gave him positive feedback about Warnock and none of them told him anything which would have created any sort of doubt in his mind.
Ward admits that Cardiff is situated far away from where he belongs to, but, he insists that it’s not that he doesn’t have any connections over there. He has got a few mates in that City and a few mates even in the Bluebirds’ squad and secondly, it’s the chance of working with the coach he rates so highly which really helped him come to his decision.

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’’
