Manager Bio

Neil Warnock took charge of Cardiff City on 5 October 2016 and led the Bluebirds to the Premier League in 2017/18, securing a record eighth promotion as a manager in England.

The Yorkshireman’s first posts came in non-league football. But after leading Scarborough out of the National League in 1986/87, Warnock took charge of third-tier side Notts County.

He oversaw back-to-back promotions, taking them up to the top flight ahead of the 1991/92 season, and then won further play-off finals with Huddersfield Town and Plymouth Argyle in 1994/95 and 1995/96.

Warnock managed Oldham Athletic and Bury before joining Sheffield United in December 1999.

The Blades moved up to the top flight in 2005/06 and Warnock oversaw his first Premier League campaign, which ended in relegation.

He spent most of the following three seasons with Crystal Palace before moving to Queens Park Rangers, whom he led to the Championship title in 2010/11.

Warnock’s second spell in the Premier League was cut short as he left QPR in January 2012. But, after a period with Leeds United, he returned to Crystal Palace - now in the top tier - at the start of the 2014/15 season.

He departed after exactly four months. However, after a brief spell back with QPR and then a period with Rotherham United, he took the reins at Cardiff in October 2016.

Warnock's record eighth promotion came in his second season in Wales thanks to a runner-up finish in the Championship, giving Cardiff their second chance at Premier League football.
