Neil Warnock has launched a scathing attack on Wolves’ spending habits and has claimed they will not improve as a team.
The 68-year-old watched his Cardiff side succumb to a 3-1 defeat at Molineux on Saturday but slammed his opponents after the match.
Wolves fans gave the ex-Crystal Palace and Leeds boss a tirade of abuse throughout the game but two goals by Danny Batth and a Helder Costa wonder goal meant that the Black Country fans would go home with the last laugh in a 3-1 win.
Warnock believes that his team are more than a match for Wolves after his rivals splashed out over £30million on transfers since Fosun bought the club.
Costa became the club’s record signing in January when he turned his loan deal in a permanent one to the tune of £12million.
Paul Lambert’s side have moved away from the relegation zone after four consecutive wins but they still remain three points behind Warnock’s Cardiff.
“You saw Wolves spent £12million on one player,” said Warnock, as quoted by the Express & Star. “We haven’t spent a penny. We brought Greg Halford in.
“I think we can improve, I’m not sure they can.
“I don’t think they won the game, I think we lost it really.
“I was quite comfortable with things early doors. Even when they scored, we looked dangerous.”
The stats suggest that the two sides endured an even game, despite the scoreline, as both fired seven shots at goal while Cardiff edged possession.
Wolves welcome Nottingham Forest to Molineux on Tuesday night as they look to win their fifth game in a row.
