Neil Warnock is confident he will be given the support to make his latest Premier League adventure a success.
The 69-year-old’s previous three spells in the Premier League all ended in the sack – at Crystal Palace, Sheffield United and QPR – and he told talkSPORT back in November that he hated managing in the top-flight.
But Warnock believes it will be a different story this time around at Cardiff as he enjoys an excellent relationship with chairman Mehmet Dalman and owner Vincent Tan.
Speaking on the Sports Breakfast on Monday, he said: “All the times I have been in the Premier League prior, I felt a bit let down by the chairmen if I’m honest.
“With this one, I have no excuse – he is brilliant Mehmet Dalman. He is working under Vincent Tan and I know I am going to get the support I want.
“They know I am not going to spend stupid money.
“In the past I have never been in the bottom three and I have still lost my job!
“We will have a good do. We have got to enjoy it.
“None of the fans thought we would be here so let’s make sure we enjoy it.”
Warnock insists there will be no huge transfer spree to try and ensure Cardiff survive next season.
He plans to follow the lead set by Burnley, who were relegated under Sean Dyche in 2015 but returned stronger without spending huge sums.
Warnock said: “We are not going to change things drastically. We can’t do that.
“Burnley went down the first year [they went up to the Premier League], but they used the money, the infrastructure of the club changed, they got everything done and then they came back up stronger.
“We have to buy players now that not only try and keep us there but if the worst comes to the worst, we will be stronger to come back as a club and we will use the money off the field as well.”
