Cardiff City beat Brighton 2-1 at the City Calling Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday.
Neil Warnock was in an understandably upbeat mood when speaking after the game, stating that his Bluebirds side is widely expected to be relegated but feels they have progressed a lot in recent seasons.
“We are everybody’s favourites to go down, and we need three or four players in January, but we have come along way in 18 months,” the Cardiff manager told the press following a vital win.
“You can’t say no to coming into the Premier League and we are going to enjoy it.”
Warnock reached a century of games in charge of Cardiff City, a fact that had seemingly gone unnoticed by the man himself.
“I didn’t even realise it was my 100th game until yesterday. Then it will be about my 70th birthday. But I don’t feel it and I feel really proud to be manager of this group.”
Cardiff City are 18th in the Premier League with 8 points from their opening 12 games.
It certainly won’t be an easy task for The Bluebirds but if they can avoid relegation this season it will be worth a huge amount to the club, both in terms of reputation and financially.
