Cardiff promoted to English Premier League

  • Cardiff promoted to Premier League as Barnsley, Burton go down

I was close to the goalkeeping coach there, so I just trained as hard as I could and waited. He is working under Vincent Tan and I know I am going to get the support I want.

There was also a fourth sojourn in a Premier League hot seat - when appointed to Crystal Palace in 2015 - and he lasted all of four months on that occasion.

Manager Neil Warnock achieved promotion for the record eight time, eclipsing luminaries such as Dave Bassett and Graham Taylor who had seven.

Aaron Wilbraham was the hero with a late victor as Bolton - who had started the day 23rd in the table - scored twice in as many minutes to complete a miraculous escape.

Speaking with BBC Sport Wales, the Cardiff boss said: "I've got to plan pre-season straight away and I've already got transfer targets that I have got to try and get permission from the board to try and sign".




Cardiff City will join Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League next season after winning promotion on the final day of the Championship season.

It has been quite the year for the Etheridge, who earlier this year made history with the Azkals after clinching a historic maiden trip to the AFC Asian Cup in 2019.

"They're proud of being Bluebirds again, the fans", Warnock added. He guided the team to a midtable finish at the end of his first season and has been the driving force behind an improbable promotion campaign this season despite spending a fraction of the outlay of rival clubs like Villa, Derby and Middlesbrough. And if you think Cardiff could do a Leicester and win the Premier League, that is listed at 2,500/1.
