According to chairman Mehmet Dalman, coach Neil Warnock is not going to quit the team, after reports made by The Sun.
English media outlet The Sun reported that Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock was close to quitting the team.
The news comes after the disappearance of Argentinean footballer Emiliano Sala, whose plane crashed in the English Channel and his whereabouts are still unknown.
According to The Sun, the pressure was such, that the Cardiff coach is thinking of quitting.
But in a talk to Wales Online, Cardiff City chairman Mehmet Dalman explained how this was “total nonsense.”
“I was speaking to Neil only 30 minutes ago and we were discussing how the next three games will go.”
“We were talking about Southampton this weekend and how Neil plans to build upon the excellent win against Bournemouth and the fine performance away to Arsenal,” he added.
Warnock was very sentimental during Emiliano Sala’s homage in Cardiff’s first home game since he disappeared.
“But that doesn’t mean he’s going to quit. We’ve had no discussions whatsoever of that nature,” said Dalman.
The 70-year-old coach joined Cardiff City in 2016.
He has coached all around the English football leagues, with teams like Notts County, Huddersfield Town, Sheffield United, Crystal Palace, Queens Park Rangers, and Leeds United.
Cardiff City is currently in the 18th position of the English Premier League table with just 22 points.
They are 11 points ahead of the last place, but they have become a permanent fixture of the relegation zone.
The team has only won six matches out of 25, drawing four times and losing in 15 games.
Tough couple of weeks but a great result today! Faultless support! Thank you to everyone supporting us! Another clean sheet and a massive 3 points on the board! #ForSala #ForDavid #3points #football #win #cleansheet pic.twitter.com/Joc08CO3cc
