CONFIRMED: Cardiff City appoint Neil Warnock as new manager after sacking Paul Trollope

Neil Warnock has been appointed Cardiff City’s new manager.

The 67-year-old has signed a deal to succeed Paul Trollope, who was sacked on Tuesday after less than five months in charge.

Kevin Blackwell and Ronnie Jepson have also joined the Championship side as assistant manager and first team coach respectively.

Warnock has managed a host of clubs in England, including Leeds United, Sheffield United and Crystal Palace, and has an impressive record of seven promotions in his career.

He most recently enjoyed a successful spell at Rotherham, leading the relegation-threatened Millers to Championship safety last season after being appointed on a short-term deal in February.

Warnock was offered a long-term contract by the club in the summer but turned it down in search of a new challenge.

Now he has been tempted to make his return to management with Cardiff.

He takes over a Bluebirds side sitting second from bottom in the Championship, and his first match in charge will be on October 14 against Bristol City.
