Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock admits he is unlikely to take another job in football once he leaves the club for the good of his health.

Wales Online write that Warnock will take charge of the Bluebirds for the 100th time this weekend against Brighton and Hove Albion.

Warnock has been in charge at the Cardiff City Stadium since October 2016 and masterminded the club’s promotion to the Premier League as rank outsiders last season.

He turns 70 next month and is the second oldest manager in the football league behind Crystal Palace’s Roy Hodgson.

Damour admits he may be forced to leave Cardiff

Damour admits he may be forced to leave Cardiff Cardiff City midfielder Loic Damour has hinted that he may be forced to leave the club in January should his playing time not increase. Wales Online cite French outlet Foot Mercato in reporting that the midfielder has seen just 21 minutes of Premier League action this season. The 27-year old moved to South Wales in the summer of 2017 following the expiry of his contract with French division two outfit Bourg-en-Bresse Peronnas. He made 29 league appearances in the Championship as the Bluebirds were promoted, but has since been pushed down the pecking order by loan additions Harry Arter and Victor Camarasa. With Joe Ralls, Aron Gunnarsson and even Jazz Richards also ahead of him in Neil Warnock’s plans, it seems Damour may be forced to leave. The Frenchman said: “It’s many players’ dream to play in the Premier League, even more so for me because of my career. People asked about me, but I was never going to leave on loan for the Championship. I knew it would be hard, that there would be competition.” “I wasn’t a starter, but in my head, I told myself that I wouldn’t leave before at least trying. I’m giving everything until December, and if my situation doesn’t get better, I might have to start thinking. At 27, I need to play.” “Six months like this, it’s alright. You don’t leave without trying, but in December we’ll sit down and assess the situation.” Damour is under contract at the Cardiff City Stadium until the Summer of 2019.

The home of Cardiff City Football on BBC Sport online. Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock admits he did not want their match against Leicester to go ahead initially - but says they are now fully supportive of the decision. BBC Sport Wales speaks to a member of each of his teams to find out.

He said:

“When you get to my age, you can’t really look beyond the next few weeks or months, whatever contract or job you’re in. Life changes so quickly, you can’t plan ahead. You can hope to. I would love to keep Cardiff up and stabilise them and keep them up again.”

“My health will decide how long I stay in the job I don’t think that will change. I look at the club as a farewell club, I don’t think I’ll be leaving and going to another club. I don’t look beyond the next few months – I don’t think you can.”

“I have got a fitness regime, working on my health and cutting down on alcohol. I train on my bike and when I see the lads I say ‘never get old lads’.It’s harder to motivate yourself, it’s too easy to sit behind your desk and have a bun and a cup of coffee.I’ve got this year and next year (contracted to Cardiff) so we’ll see how we go”

The Bluebirds currently sit 19th in the table having accumulated five points in 11 matches, whilst Brighton sit 12th with 14 points.

Klopp discusses how Liverpool counter-pressed against Cardiff.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has explained how his side counter-pressed their way to victory against Cardiff City on Saturday. Speaking to the club’s official website, the German detailed the importance of his side’s tactical approach to proceedings and credited Liverpool’s ruthless attacking display. The Reds returned to their free-scoring ways in the Premier League at Anfield as they defeated the Bluebirds 4-1. Mohamed Salah opened the scoring, Xherdan Shaqiri netted his first Liverpool goal and Sadio Mane ended a mini-goal drought to fire home a brace. This comprehensive win lifted Liverpool to the top of the table as they continued their unbeaten start to the new Premier League season. Klopp was evidently impressed by the way in which his men carried out their game-plan against Neil Warnock’s side and spoke about the influence of counter-pressing following the victory. The Reds’ boss said: “It’s like a whole counter-press situation: lose the ball, get it back, shoot and fire in, so that’s really good. We had these situations against Belgrade [and] you need that. You need that constantly, actually.” “You need to play the pass with the risk to lose it. If you lose it you can win it back and then you have a gap at least for a second or so. To create a gap in a game like this you need kind of 10, 15 passes.” Liverpool’s next fixture in the Premier League is a testing encounter with Arsenal, who are currently enjoying a 12-game unbeaten run in all competitions.
