Neil Etheridge says the Cardiff players want manager Neil Warnock to stay at the club following their relegation from the Premier League.
Cardiff’s instant return to the Sky Bet Championship was confirmed by a 3-2 home defeat to Crystal Palace, the Bluebirds exiting the top flight alongside Fulham and Huddersfield.
Warnock has one year left on his Cardiff deal and, having consistently said that he would like to see his contract out, he responded to relegation by saying he will “let things settle” in terms of discussing his future.
Owner Vincent Tan made a rare visit to Cardiff on Saturday, and it remains to be seen whether the Malaysian businessman will keep the 70-year-old Yorkshireman at the helm after a difficult campaign.

“His stats speak for themselves – eight promotions,” Cardiff goalkeeper Etheridge said of Warnock. “He’s a fantastic man-manager and knows exactly what to do. “He’s been in the game long enough to know what players need, whether it’s a kick up the backside or an arm around them.
As players, we want him to stay. But that’s a decision for him, not for us, and it’s something he’ll reflect on this summer.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH. The content of this ebook will propel you above your competition. DOWNLOAD NOW!!!
