Let Wolves sign who they want – Warnock

Cardiff City

Cardiff boss Neil Warnock has dismissed concerns over Wolves' behaviour in the transfer market, claiming it does not bother him.

The Bluebirds find themselves in a battle with Wolves for top spot in the Championship with the Molineux outfit currently six points ahead of the second-placed Bluebirds.

Wolves’ rise to the top has been helped by a number of big-name foreign imports, deals which have been facilitated by super-agent Jorge Mendes, who has a close relationship with the club’s owners.

That relationship has now been called in to question by some Championship clubs and the EFL says it plans to meet with Wolves to discuss its ownership structure.

Warnock does not believe the league leaders have done anything wrong though and says he will not grumble no matter who they sign, even if they were able to land the world’s most expensive player Neymar.

Having been named Championship manager of the month for February, Warnock was asked about Wolves’ conduct and replied: ‘All this talk of advantages – let them sign who they want. It doesn’t bother me if they sign Neymar. I think it’s great, I wish we had all contacts like they have. Good luck to them because they’ve been in the doldrums for so long.

‘When they’ve been down for so long, let the fans enjoy it. Why moan about it? If I could get some of those players he’s got I’d have them.

‘Mendes has got worldwide players, it was the same when I was at QPR in the Premier League – there were names coming at me from his players. They are using it and why not? That’s football.

‘If you can get an advantage, good luck to you, as long as it’s not illegal. I don’t see anything illegal in an agent helping a club.’
