Cardiff City coach Neil Warnock has left his position by mutual consent, the club have announced.

Warnock, 70, was appointed in October 2016 with the club second from bottom in the English Championship and guided them to promotion to the Premier League in 2018.

Cardiff were relegated after just one season back in the top flight and are currently 14th in the Championship after one win in their last six league matches.

"Cardiff City Football Club can confirm that manager Neil Warnock has left his position by mutual agreement and with immediate effect," read a statement on the club's official website.

"Having joined the club in October 2016, Neil oversaw 144 matches and famously led us to promotion at the end of a fantastic 2017/18 season.

"The board will now begin the process of replacing Neil. An announcement to this effect will be made in due course."
