Former Cardiff striker Michael Chopra is convinced his old club have made the right decision by appointing Neil Warnock as manager.
“Cardiff needed somebody with a good record in the Championship and when it comes to winning promotions Neil Warnock is the man,” Chopra told Sky Sports.
“I hope he can bring success to the club and can get Cardiff back in the Premier League for the fans and the city of Cardiff.”
“Neil is a true Yorkshireman and he is so determined. His teams always show fight and passion and that’s what the fans want to see.
“Friday night is a derby game because Bristol is just across the water. When I played in those derbies we always used to come out on top but this one promises to be a great occasion
“I’m sure it will be tremendous and he will definitely get huge support from the fans.”
Chopra scored 63 goals in 159 appearances over three spells at Cardiff and picked out his added-time winner against bitter rivals Swansea in 2010 as the highlight of his time in the Welsh capital.
