Neil Warnock launches into anti-EU rant after draw to Huddersfield

"I think we'll be far better out of the bloody thing. In every aspect. To hell with the rest of the world. Football-wise as well"

In the least surprising news in political/footballing history, Neil Warnock emerged as a gammon-y Brexiteer on Saturday following Cardiff's 0-0 draw with Huddersfield.

After being asked how exiting the EU would affect football in the aftermath of the game, he launched into an attack on prime minister Theresa May's handling of Britain's EU withdrawal.

The vote on May's Brexit deal is due next week after it was delayed in December until after the parliamentary recess.

Warnock told Sky Sports: "I think once the country knows what they're doing and we get an agreement and move on, I think it will be straightforward [to sign players].

"But I don't know why politicians don't do what the country wanted if I'm honest. They had a referendum and now we see politicians and everyone else trying to put their foot in it.

"Why did we have a referendum in the first bloody place? I can't wait to get out if I'm honest. I think we'll be far better out of the bloody thing. In every aspect. To hell with the rest of the world. Football-wise as well."

An amendment passed last week means that Theresa May fails to get her agreement through parliament on Tuesday she will be  forced to present MPs with a new Brexit plan within three days. This means the likelihood of a no deal Brexit that would see the UK crash out of the European Union on World Trade Organisation terms has been reduced.
