Neil Warnock has worked wonders at Cardiff City, leading the club from the relegation zone to mid-table last season, before transforming the Bluebirds into promotion contenders this year.
Cardiff are currently top of the Sky Bet Championship table, boasting a 100% record after four fixtures of the season.
Key to Cardiff and Warnock’s success over the last year has been Sol Bamba, the defender who signed following his release from Leeds United last summer.
Bamba has made 31 appearances for Cardiff across all competitions, including every fixture in the Championship this season, helping Warnock’s side maintain their 100% start to the season.
The 32-year-old has now signed a new three-year deal at the Cardiff City Stadium, much to the delight of Warnock.
Following the announcement of Bamba’s new deal in Wales, here is how Cardiff’s fans reacted on Twitter…
SOL SOL BAMBA !! ????

Sol Bamba has been colossal since arriving last October. A thoroughly nice man as well

Isn't he 32?!? Looks great right now, immense in fact, but 3 years could be a gamble?

3 years!? I love Sol he's been amazing for us since signing but he's 32 ffs. That's a hell of a gamble.
