Danny Ward discloses that Neil Warnock was the reason why he preferred Cardiff

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.

Warnock not afraid of sacking

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has stated that he is not scared of being sacked by the club as he is sure of getting another job.

He believes that there is a shortage of good managers in the game at the moment and that will give him a lot of opportunities.

Warnock said that he has plenty of experience in the Championship and this should allow him to coach any other club. For this reason, he is not afraid of losing his job if ever the Cardiff City board decided to sack him.

Cardiff City is currently 13th in the Championship and are currently on a good run of form. Many pundits were tipping Cardiff City to make a serious push for promotion this season, but they were let down by a poor start to the season.

Cardiff City managed a third win in the last five matches

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.
