Cardiff manager Neil Warnock wants to help the club find his successor after agreeing to remain with the Bluebirds for another season.

Warnock joined Cardiff in October 2016 and earned them a surprise promotion to the Premier League in 2017-18.

After he failed to keep the Bluebirds in the top flight this term, reports suggested the 70-year-old could leave the Cardiff City Stadium this summer.

But Warnock has agreed to see out the final year of his deal in the Championship and says he will help in the process of finding his successor.

‘When you get relegated the manager’s position is usually in doubt,’ Warnock said.

‘But Vincent (Tan, Cardiff owner) made it clear last week that he wanted me to stay, and how can you not want to when you see how the fans have been with me over the last couple of years? He added: ‘It rankles a little bit that we got relegated.

I just feel it’s not the time to change with the squad I’ve got and the players I want to bring in.

But we’ve got to obviously look for a replacement for me now.

‘I would like to think we could do well and I can help them in that selection.’
