Former Cardiff boss sets sights on significant milestone in near future



Former Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has spoken out on a league milestone which he could potentially hit in his next job.

Speaking to BBC Radio Wales, the 71-year-old revealed that he could hit the milestone of 1,500 league games managed if he was in charge for just 12 games at his next club.

The former Cardiff boss said: “Apparently I’ve got 12 league games to go to get to 1,500.

“That’s very tempting. I might have to go to League Two or something. It doesn’t bother me what division I’m in.

“I just think that I’ll probably go until the end of the season, only because we’re doing quite a bit of renovation and it’ll all be finished at the end of the season. I think Sharon will be glad to kick me out!”

Who is this former Cardiff man?

Warnock has been out of work since November, when he chose to resign from his role at The Cardiff City Stadium having guided them to the Premier League in 2018 before subsequent relegation a year later.

Across a managerial career that spans over 40 years, the veteran manager has coached Scarborough, Notts County, Torquay United, Huddersfield Town, Plymouth Argyle, Oldham Athletic, Bury, Sheffield United, Crystal Palace, QPR, Leeds United, Rotherham United and Cardiff in the Football League.

His achievements have seen him become a highly-respected manager in English football, with eight promotions on his CV, seven of which came in the Football League.

The 71-year-old is held in regard as being one of the best to have managed in the Football League at a consistent level across the past few decades.

The Verdict

Warnock has become one of the best in English management with the respect and discipline he brings to a dressing room, and his close achievement of almost hitting 1,500 games is a record to be proud of.

It is noble of Warnock to be willing to take a job in League Two just so he can reach the milestone and enjoy the thrill of management for one last time, as he looks for one last swansong in his career.
