According to a report from the Sun, there are some Cardiff players who believe Warnock will leave at the end of the season. The Bluebirds currently sit in the relegation zone in 18th place, five points adrift of safety. 

It has been a difficult season for Cardiff off the pitch as well on it. In January, £15m signing Emiliano Sala tragically died in a plane crash.

Cardiff were concerned at one point that the emotional toll of the tragedy would cause Warnock to step down as manager.

With the club five points of adrift of safety and having a far inferior goal difference to their relegation rivals, Cardiff face an uphill battle to stay up.
