CARDIFF City man­ager Neil Warnock is adamant he has the best de­fender in the di­vi­sion in Sol Bamba.

The 31-year-old Ivory Coast man joined on a free trans­fer from Leeds, and Warnock reck­ons he has the qual­ity to be play­ing at a higher level.

“I don’t think there’s any­one bet­ter,” said Warnock. “Like top play­ers, he’s got all the at­tributes. For­tu­nately for us, we’ve got him at the right time. He’s a good lad but should be play­ing at the top level re­ally.

“I wouldn’t say he’s wasted his ca­reer, but he’s been al­lowed to get away with things he shouldn’t be al­lowed to.”
