Cardiff City

Nuno issue well in the past - Warnock

29th November 2018, 14:13 by James Mason

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock says the huge row with Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo seven months ago has now been resolved.

Warnock labelled Nuno a "total disgrace" and repeatedly swore at the Portuguese for not shaking his hand after Wolves had beaten Cardiff 1-0 in a highly-charged Championship promotion clash in April.

The spat was sparked when the Bluebirds missed two stoppage-time penalties and Nuno celebrated by running on to the pitch before attempting to shake Warnock's hand.

It was thought round two between the duo would be seen when they go head-to-head on Friday night in the Premier League in south Wales, but Warnock insists the issue has been resolved.

He said at a press conference: "I've already shaken hands with him and spoke to him two or three times at the end of last season. I telephoned him when they got promotion last year and we met up at the LMA (League Managers' Association).

"He's a big bloke and he gave me a hug. He's a big bloke, isn't he? He gave me a squeeze - and I wasn't sure if it was a nice one, but it was.

"I haven't got a problem with a bit of passion, it doesn't do any harm, really. That's why I'm in the game and he wants to win things."
