    Neil Warnock says he is looking to manage one more club and would like to take on another role this season.

    The 71-year-old left Cardiff City in November having been in football for over 50 years as a player, coach and manager and having managed 1,488 games.

    Warnock says he is motivated for one last challenge and wants to reach the milestone of 1,500 competitive matches.

    "Apparently I have 12 league games to go to get 1,500 and that is really tempting to me," Warnock said.

    Cardiff were the 15th team to be managed by Warnock, who has achieved a record eight promotions, including taking the Bluebirds into the Premier League.

    Warnock says he is motivated for one last challenge, but has an open mind as to what level his next club is at.

    "I might have to go to League Two or something like that, but why not? It doesn't bother me what division I am managing in," he added in an interview with BBC Radio Wales breakfast.

    "I just think I will go to the end of this season. We are doing quite a bit of renovation at the house in Cornwall and it will be finished at the end of the season.

    "So I think Sharon [his wife] will be happy for me to be out of the house for a few weeks!

    "People have mentioned things, but I have had no offers yet.

    "I would like to do the 12 games if I am honest, I would like to be able to contribute to a club, either saving it or getting it up.

    "Arsenal didn't come in for me, but I was understanding!"

    Good luck to him if that what he wants. To still be enthusiastic and want to keep working in a job he loves at 71 is a rare gift. Most people can't wait to give up the day to day slog, but being able to do what you enjoy brings a completely different mindset.

    I must’ve missed the bit where it was claimed he was going to join a club that didn’t want to sign him.

    If I owned a club that was languishing at in a relegation spot I would take him in a heartbeat.

    Good luck to him in whatever he chooses to do I say

    Yeah....things were so much better at the club before he arrived. Playing lovely football and ripping the league up, all in unity with the fans.

    NW was far from the worst manager we have had, not even the worse in the last decade. Just seems your bitterness towards him makes you unable to let things go.

    Didn't actually realise there was an official party line :shrug2:

    Life's as much about leaving the stage at the right time as well. His one last roll of the dice could easily result in a relegation and he'll have all his retirement to reflect on that then. He had a good career. Budge over for the younger lads now Neil.

    The only one who seems offended is you because you dont agree with me criticising Sir Neil.

    I will continue to criticise him wether you think I am being bitter or not so perhaps you had better start to live with it.

    Rotherham a couple of seasons ago is a good example. I think he would do the job for expenses.

    I live with your bitterness towards him most days without being offended in the slightest.

    Just occasionally decide to reply to you to add some balance from a less bitter place

    Knock yourself out with your criticism of him, I don't really care and I'm sure NW wouldn't really give a fuck either. I just find it amusing that you still harbour all this shit over a manager who has long gone, just as you wanted.
