I have to convert the following sentence into its imquoted indirect form for narration.
"You'd better leave the dog alone," the man said.
Which one of the following two is correct?
The man warned me to leave the dog alone.
The man said I should leave the dog alone.
According to me second one is correct because in the original sentence there is some kind of suggestion. And should indicates suggestion. But according to my book first one is correct.
