Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has called on his players to use Tiger Woods’ Masters victory as motivation in the season run in.

As reported by BT Sport, Woods claimed his 15th major title at Augusta yesterday afternoon, 11 years after his previous win.

The golfer had been struggling for several years and was reported to be on the verge of retirement, but conjured up an astonishing performance to reclaim the famous green jacket.

Now Cardiff must produce a success story of similar magnitude if they are to maintain their Premier League status for next season.

With five matches remaining, the Bluebirds are five points adrift of 17th-placed Brighton and Hove Albion, who they face tomorrow evening at the Amex Stadium.

Warnock’s men will have to beat the South Coast club if they are to realistically have any chance of survival, especially given the fact that they also face Liverpool and Manchester United before the end of the campaign.

They may have had more of a chance had they got a result at Burnley on Saturday, but they, unfortunately, fell short thanks to a Chris Wood brace.

On the achievement of Woods and how Cardiff can use it, Warnock said:

“We just have to look at the golf and at what Tiger has done – amazing. Nobody gave him a chance either, he has been written off that many times and we have. Obviously over the last few weeks we have felt sorry for ourselves a few times. We haven’t got time to do that (at Brighton) and if it’s not good enough then we accept it. But this is an opportunity to give ourselves a chance till the end of the season. We have to grab that.”

Warnock willing to forfeit compensation should he face the axe.
Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock says he will not demand compensation should they decide he is not the man to take him forward this summer. The Telegraph also write that Warnock’s future is not guaranteed and will be decided in the coming weeks. The 70-year-old joined the club in October 2016 and guided them to the Premier League in his first full season at the helm. Having started his managerial career over 35 years ago you might think that the Yorkshireman would want to take a step back, but he says he would be more than willing to fulfil the final year of his contract next season.
