West Ham vs Tottenham: Our win is a proof of unity – Warnock.
Cardiff City manager,Neil Warnock has said his side’s win against West Ham in their Premier League encounter was a proof of unity within his squad.
Hammers ended a run of three successive Premier League defeats with an impressive 2-0 home victory, but remain two points from safety after Southampton came from behind to beat Tottenham.
Before start of the game former players Danny Gabbidon and Nathan Blake had questioned the team spirit inside the Cardiff camp under Warnock’s watch.
Blake even went as far as saying that the dressing room was ”splintered” but defiant boss Warnock said the performance answered that criticism.
”I think even the lads mentioned the ‘split camp’ and the ‘’plinters’ and what’s been said this week,’ Warnock said.
”But you don’t get a performance like that with a split camp.
”I thought they were fabulous, from one to 11 and the subs.
”I don’t think there was a weakness.
”I thought we worked hard this week in training and it’s benefited us.
When asked if he had addressed those claims of a dressing-room rift, Warnock said;
”I didn’t have to.
”The lads were all talking about it,
”We were asking them to stand up
”will you stand up please, you rifters!’ but nobody stood up.
”You always get that when you get defeats, because you ‘the media’ have got to write about something.’ he added.
