Neil Warnock insists Emiliano Sala tragedy puts Cardiff relegation in perspective

first_imgAdvertisement Comment Cardiff City were relegated from the Premier League following a 3-2 defeat against Crystal Palace (Picture: Reuters)Neil Warnock insisted Cardiff’s relegation from the Premier League relegation pales into insignificance as the club continues to mourn for Emiliano Sala.The Welsh club’s demotion to the Championship was confirmed on Saturday after Crystal Palace secured a 3-2 victory and preserved the top flight status of their own arch rivals Brighton.Cardiff broke their club transfer record to sign Sala from Nantes in January but the 28-year-old tragically lost his life in a helicopter crash before he even had a chance to make his debut for the Bluebirds.‘We worked really hard for two months to get the lad signed, that puts it into perspective – yes, we’ve got relegated, but life is far more important,’ said Warnock.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTMore: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City‘You can’t plan for something like that and I didn’t think it would affect the players in the way it did.‘I did think he would score 10 or 15 goals, he was the type we needed. It wasn’t to be.’Warnock admitted he was disappointed not to take the fight for survival until the final weekend with Brighton facing Champions League chasing Arsenal on Sunday, but the 70-year-old pinpointed last month’s controversial home defeat against Chelsea as the result that broke his side’s resolve.
