'To Hell With The Rest Of The World'- Neil Warnock Launches Strange Brexit Rant

'To Hell With The Rest Of The World'- Neil Warnock Launches Strange Brexit Rant

He never seemed like a remainer to be fair. Neil Warnock has launched a strange rant on Brexit, blasting politicians for being unable to reach a satisfactory deal.

With his Cardiff side sitting in 17th place in the Premier League, Warnock decided to take out his frustrations on Theresa May and her inability to express the will of the British people. The 70-year old is clearly looking forward to the country's exit from the EU, and feels English football will be better for it.

I think once the country knows what they're doing and we get an agreement and move on, I think it will be straightforward [to sign players].

But I don't know why politicians don't do what the country wanted if I'm honest. They had a referendum and now we see politicians and everyone else trying to put their foot in it.

Why did we have a referendum in the first bloody place? I can't wait to get out if I'm honest. I think we'll be far better out of the bloody thing. In every aspect. To hell with the rest of the world. Football-wise as well.

A proper football man view on the most divisive issue in Britain at the moment. You wouldn't expect anything less.

There is no doubt that Brexit has had an effect on English club's abilities in the transfer market, with the declining value of the pound making deals with teams on the continent more expensive. There is also the looming issue of visas, which are not required for EU players under current legislation.

Some have speculated that players from EU countries will need work visas going forward, with the qualifying criteria likely to be similar to that applied to South American players currently.

That criteria applied to the number of international games footballers have played for their national side, and would have ruled out a number of the players that currently plying their trade in the Premier League had it been applied previously.

Those already in the country will likely be unaffected by any change to the rules, but it could have a massive impact on potential incomings from foreign shores in the coming seasons.
