Neil Warnock In Tears After Cardiff's Emotional Win Over Bournemouth

After "the most difficult week" of his managerial career, Neil Warnock guided Cardiff to a 2-0 win over Bournemouth and the 70-year old was visibly emotional as he left the pitch at the end of the game.

It was Cardiff's first home game following the tragic disappearance of their £15 million signing Emiliano Sala and pilot Dave Ibbotson after the plane travelling from Nantes to Cardiff went off the radar.

The Bluebirds' faithful paid tribute to the 28-year old Argentine with a stunning mosaic during the minute silence prior to the game, while all the players wore t-shirts with Sala on during the warm-up and their match shirts had yellow daffodils on.

And when Bobby Reid struck the opener from the spot in the first half, he immediately set about holding Sala's shirt aloft in tribute to the former Nantes striker.

You could see how much the victory meant to Warnock. He fist pumped and gestured in celebratory fashion while the home fans belted out "Sing a song for Sala" in the stands.

It proved overwhelming for the former QPR boss, who teared up as he applauded supporters on his way back down the tunnel.

A fitting performance in tribute to Sala from Cardiff, demonstrating a heartwarming sense of togetherness and unity in South Wales this evening.

They travel to Southampton next week, with a win huge for their survival hopes.
