Malaysian Cardiff owner, Vincent Tan, would like the club’s manager, Neil Warnock, 70, to extend his Football League record to a ninth promotion as a manager.

"I am happy for Neil to stay and achieve his ninth promotion to the EPL," said Tan according to the BBC.

Warnock is contracted until the end of the 2019-20 season and after losing 3-2 to Crystal Palace, which confirmed The Bluebirds’ relegation, he said he would be working as a manager next season but had "no idea" whether he would remain with Cardiff.

But Tan has now moved to reassure Warnock by making it clear he wants the Yorkshireman to remain.

“Everybody’s disappointed to suffer a relegation,” said Warnock after the Palace defeat and added:

“I can’t really be any prouder because the lads put so much effort in, but we created so many chances, second-half and that’s the story of the Premier League - you’ve got to take opportunities like that.”
