Neil Warnock sees a life after football; a life that does not involve retirement on the grounds of ill health.

When he came to Leeds he spoke passionately about the game but soberly too about outstaying his welcome and ending his days “being pushed around Looe in a wheelchair.”

Spend time in his company and you start to doubt whether Warnock has it in him to leave his work behind. He has no desire to die on the job, as he once put it, but on certain days the thought of a football-free existence must kill him. There’s a reason why Sir Alex Ferguson fights on at the age of 70 and a reason why a millionaire pensioner subjected himself to the stress of owning Leeds United. It’s what they do and all they know.
