Neil Warnock caused a stir amongst the Cardiff City faithful when he stated last week that he is strongly in favour of Brexit.
Working in an industry which is filled with people from all corners of the earth it was confusing to hear the Englishman reveal his true opinions regarding the political issue.
He said, “I think once the country knows what they’re doing, it will be straightforward [to make signings] … Any transfer window is difficult for me, not just this one. I don’t know why politicians don’t do what the country wants if I’m honest.”
“They had a referendum and now we see different politicians and everyone else trying to put their foot in it … Why did we have a referendum in the first bloody place?”
“I can’t wait to get out of it if I’m honest. I think we’ll be far better out of the bloody thing. In every aspect. Football-wise as well, absolutely. To hell with the rest of the world.”
Warnock, unfortunately, did not check his local audience when he made the comments, 60% of whom had voted against the movement. Cardiff City Football Club decided to issue an official statement to separate themselves from their manager’s viewpoints.
The statement read – “Comments made by our manager following Saturday’s fixture are representative of his personal political stance. These comments do not reflect the political position of Cardiff City Football Club, nor its Board of Directors.”
