Cardiff City have moved to distance themselves from manager Neil Warnock’s comments on Brexit.
The Bluebirds, owned by Malaysian billionaire Vincent Tan, have responded after Warnock was asked about the issue following the 0-0 draw with Huddersfield last Saturday.
“Comments made by our manager following Saturday’s fixture are representative of his personal political stance,” said a spokesperson in a press release.
“These comments do not reflect the political position of Cardiff City Football Club, nor its Board of Directors.”
Warnock spoke out when asked if Brexit would make things harder for English clubs to sign players from abroad in the January transfer window.
“I think once the country knows what they’re doing, it will be straightforward. Any transfer window is difficult for me, not just this one,” said Warnock of the issue over signing players.
He then added: “I don’t know why politicians don’t do what the country wants, if I’m honest. They had a referendum and now we see different politicians and everyone else trying to put their foot in it … Why did we have a referendum in the first bloody place?
“I can’t wait to get out of it, if I’m honest. I think we’ll be far better out of the bloody thing. In every aspect. Football-wise as well, absolutely. To hell with the rest of the world.”
City’s draw with the Terriers left them one point above the Premier League relegation zone ahead of Saturday’s trip to 18th placed Newcastle United.
