Neil Warnock delays Sky post-match interview in order to calm down

He needed a little calm down

Things did not go well for Neil Warnock today.

Cardiff City took a surprise lead in their home tie with Chelsea on Sunday afternoon – only for the Bluebirds to concede two late goals and lose the game 2-1.

It was particularly heartbreaking, as Cezar Azpilicueta’s equaliser clearly looked to be offside.

Neil Warnock was fuming, as you expect.

With Cardiff City desperately needing points in the relegation dogfight, everyone was expecting a particularly firey Neil Warnock post-match interview, where he would rally against the officials’ decisions to allow the goal.

Sadly, we did not get that. The Sky Sports presenters instead announced that he was too angry, and needed to calm down.

We missed out on the television moment of 2019, just like that…

Sky had to cut to Anfield for the Liverpool-Tottenham Hotspur, so even if he did calm down, we didn’t get to hear from him. We eagerly await his post-match press conference, however.

Cardiff City took the lead at the start of the second half, thanks to a Victor Camarasa volley.

With five minutes to go, however, Cezar Azpilicueta equalised for the visitors with a headed goal from a Marco Alonso cross – despite the fact the Spaniard clearly looked a foot offside.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek went on to secure all three points for the West Londoners in injury time.

The result takes the pressure off under-fire Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri, who faced  “We want Sarri out” chants from the away fans after his side went behind.

The same cannot be said for Neil Warnock’s side, who are five points adrift of Burnley, who picked up an important three points against Wolves on Saturday.
