Warnock & # 39; s Brexit comments are not views of club – Cardiff
Cardiff has distanced itself from the pro-Brexit comments from manager Neil Warnock by saying that his views do not represent those of the club.
Warnock launched a fierce attack on the failure of the government to achieve the outcome of the 2016 referendum after the Premier League game against Huddersfield Saturday, and said he could not wait until the UK left the European Union.
The 70-year-old Yorkshireman added the divorce: "To hell with the rest of the world", although Cardiff is owned by the Malaysian businessman Vincent Tan and their team consists of players from Africa, Asia, continental Europe and North America.

In response to Warnock's remarks, Cardiff made a club statement on Monday: "Comments from our manager after Saturday's game are representative of his personal political stance.
"These comments do not reflect the political position of Cardiff City Football Club, nor the board of directors."
Warnock was asked after the 0-0 draw with Huddersfield whether the withdrawal from the UK of the European Union – as a result of formal action on 29 March – harms the chances of Premier League clubs buying players from abroad.
He replied: "I think that once the country knows what they are doing, it will be simple (to make signing sessions).
"A transfer window is difficult for me, not just this one.
"I do not know why politicians do not 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 not wait to get out, if I'm honest, I think we'll be much better out of the damn thing.
"In all respects, also in terms of football, absolute, hell with the rest of the world."
