New Cardiff City managerial candidate emerges

Published

on

Cardiff City are said to have floated the idea of potentially making an approach to bring in Rotherham United boss Paul Warne as their new manager, as per a recent report by Wales Online.

The Bluebirds are currently searching for a successor to the now departed Mick McCarthy, with the experienced boss having exited last month after failing to get his side off to a good start to the season.

Various names have since been linked with the vacant post at the Cardiff City Stadium in recent weeks and it now appears that Warne is on the agenda, with his name being one that the club board are considering.

Warne has been in charge of Rotherham since 2016 and has since led the Millers to two League One promotions, whilst also taking charge of the club in the Championship in years gone by.

His side currently sit in the play-off places in the third tier and were in impressive form at the weekend as they beat Sunderland 5-1 on home turf.

Quiz: Have each of these 24 ex-Cardiff City academy players ever played in the Premier League?

The 48-year-old has a contract at the ASSEAL New York Stadium until the summer of 2023.

The Verdict 

Warne is a manager that has shown tremendous loyalty to Rotherham United ever since they gave him the job on a long term, permanent basis and it would be interesting to see if his head could be turned.

His Rotherham side plays a direct style of football but at the same time they do have a lot of technical players that can hurt the opposition in various ways.

He would be inheriting a similar type of squad at Cardiff if he got the job, which means the role could suit him down to the ground.

The question is – will he be keen to leave a club that is fighting for promotion for one that is currently just outside the releagtion zone? Only time will tell.
