Warnock’s Brexit comments do not represent views of club - Cardiff

Warnock was asked after the 0-0 draw with Huddersfield whether the UK's exit from the European Union - due to formally occur on March 29 - will harm the chances of Premier League clubs buying players from overseas.

"I don't know why politicians don't do what the country wants, if I'm honest".

Speaking after his side's goalless draw with Huddersfield, the Cardiff City manager did not mince his words when asked about Brexit's potential impact on the football transfer market.

Warnock's comments might raise eyebrows at Cardiff, both at boardroom level and in the dressing room.

Warnock's struggles to add to his squad during this window have been well documented, with the former Crystal Palace manager publicly attacking Nathaniel Clyne and Liverpool after he felt the pair reneged on a promise for the full back to move to south Wales.

When asked how leaving the European Union would affect potential signings for the club, Warnock gave a one line answer on this before continuing to explain just why he can't wait to get the hell out of the EU.

"Why did we have a referendum in the first bloody place?"

Unsurprisingly, Cardiff - a club who are owned by a Malaysian businessman, carry "Visit Malaysia" adverts on their shirts and throughout their stadium, employ a lot of foreign staff and have a dressing room now consisting of players from Spain, Denmark, Canada, Iceland, Gabon, the Ivory Coast and the Philippines - have been quick to distance themselves from Warnock's views.

Asked about Brexit's potential impact, Warnock said: "I think any transfer window's hard for me".

'I can't wait to get out of it, if I'm honest. I think we'll be far better out of the thing. "Football-wise as well". That's the job we're in, ' said Warnock.

"When you look at the game, we quite easily could have lost, but if you can't win, you've got a point and you're better off having a point than nothing".
