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.

He admitted that steering the club to safety this campaign would be a ‘miracle’ but would like to see out his current contract that runs until 2020.

Warnock backs decision to play tomorrow's match with Leicester

Warnock backs decision to play tomorrow's match with Leicester Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock believes it is the right decision to play tomorrow’s match against Leicester City at the Cardiff City Stadium. However, the BBC report that wasn’t his initial thought, stating that the 69-year-old was initially keen to have the match postponed following the death of Foxes owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha last weekend. Srivaddhanaprabha was on board his helicopter with four other people when it crashed shortly after taking off from the King Power Stadium pitch following the Foxes’ clash with West Ham United last Saturday. Leicester have since endured an emotional week, with the players and staff all paying tribute to the Thai businessman. Warnock has admitted the incident has affected himself as well as his players but believes Srivaddhanaprabha would’ve wanted the match to go ahead. He said: “It’s been difficult. It’s like anything else in life, some lads can cope with tragedies and some find it very difficult. It has not been straightforward this week, I haven’t had a week like it before. Originally I didn’t think the game would go ahead and if I’m totally honest I was hoping it wasn’t going to go ahead.” “Monday and Tuesday this week, it was too emotional. But I understand now where they are and I think it’s a good decision to go ahead with it now because you’ve got to move on and you’ve got to get people back to normality as soon as possible. I think Vichai would have wanted that as well, he wanted his lads to play football. I think it’s the right decision for everyone.” There will be a minute’s silence before every Premier League match this weekend, and all players involved will wear black armbands. The Foxes were initially scheduled to take on Southampton in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, but that fixture will now take place on 27 November.

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.

Warnock looking for three January additions.
Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock has outlined the particular areas of his squad he wishes to strengthen in the upcoming January transfer window. As reported by BBC Sport, Warnock believes he needs to add a full-back, central midfielder and striker in order to continue the fight against relegation. The Bluebirds currently sit 18th in the Premier League table after 12 rounds of fixtures, having scored 11 goals and picked up eight points. Warnock’s side were victorious in their last match before the international break, with Sol Bamba scoring a 90th-minute winner against Brighton and Hove Albion. Cardiff made six additions to the squad following promotion from the Championship in the summer, with significant fees being spent on the likes of Josh Murphy and Bobby Reid. Harry Arter joined on a season-long loan from AFC Bournemouth, meaning the Bluebirds can register just one more loan player from a fellow top-flight club in January. However, Warnock is key to utilise the loan system, saying: “I think the main priorities are a full-back, central midfielder and a striker. Definitely, we are looking. We’re only allowed one other loan from the Premier League because we’ve got Harry [Arter] until the end of the season. We have to prioritise which players we can get on loan and then we’ve got to look abroad to bring the other two or three in, which we are doing at the moment.
