Blackburn Rovers

Warnock held Rovers talks in the summer

New Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has confirmed that he held talks with SkyBet Championship club Blackburn Rovers in the summer according to the Lancashire Telegraph.

The 67 year old has admitted that he spoke with Rovers after former boss Paul Lambert left Ewood Park at the end of last season but the initial talks did not materialise and the club instead opted to install former Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic manager Owen Coyle into the hot seat.

Warnock also held talks with other SkyBet Championship clubs including Nottingham Forest and the colourful boss finally secured his route back into football management with Cardiff City last week. The challenge on offer at the Cardiff City Stadium is one which Warnock will surely relish after the South Yorkshireman steered Rotherham United to safety after sitting in a similar position last year.

After a poor start to the season, Cardiff City find themselves cemented to the SkyBet Championship relegation zone after winning just two of their 11 league matches. In Warnock, the club have hired a master of success in English football’s second tier.

Warnock has managed no less than 15 different clubs during his long managerial career saving many from relegation and winning promotion on seven occasions. Cardiff City will hope that they have hired a man capable of transforming the club from early season strugglers into promotion candidates themselves.
