It has been an inspiring week, as many taps into the comeback story of Tiger Woods, including Cardiff 70-year-old Neil Warnock. Neil Warnock has said he is taking inspiration from Tiger Woods’ Masters’ victory as he tries to mastermind Cardiff’s Premier League survival bid, defying the odds.
Cardiff are battling to avoid relegation and are five points adrift of today’s opponents Brighton, who have played one game less than Warnock’s side and sit one place above them, 17th in the table.
“You’ve got to be optimistic,” Warnock said.
“We’ve had that many kicks in the teeth in the last four months and we keep bouncing back really. We’ve just got to look at the golf, and look at what he’s done, Tiger, which was amazing and nobody had given him a chance either”.
Woods completed one of the great sporting comebacks on Sunday night as he won his fifth Masters title, 11 years after winning his last major.
A story that has moved Warnock to believe “It’s just an amazing story really. He’s been written off that many times, hasn’t he? But that determination [he showed is incredible]. And obviously over the last few weeks we have felt sorry for ourselves a few times and we haven’t got time to do that now. We have to give it our best shot and if it’s not good enough we’ll accept it.”
