Sam Allardyce is set to be appointed Crystal Palace boss
Alan Pardew was sacked yesterday after just six wins in the EPL 2016/2017 season with Crystal Palace fourth bottom in the Premier League.
Allardyce has already held talks with Palace chiefs – and met officials from the club in London last week to discuss the terms of his new appointment.
Crystal Palace new coach Allardyce was sacked by England after just one game in charge following the Telegraph sting but is free to take over.
We were made to understand that he will be taking over training within the next 24hrs ahead of boxing day features.
Pardew guided Palace to the FA Cup final last year and was a club legend from his playing days, but ultimately paid the price for poor results.
Yesterday he said: “I would just like to take the opportunity to thank everybody at Crystal Palace for their fantastic support. In particular a big thanks to the players who gave me absolutely everything and Steve Parish and his Board.
“Personally I have a lot of good feelings for this football Club and am sad that my time there has ended.
“I feel that I have a special bond with the club and hope that hasn’t been affected, I wish everybody associated with the Club the best of luck in the future including of course the fans who have been magnificent.”
As at the time of announcing the new development, Crystal Palace fans react on Twitter showing their concern over the changes and at the same time praying that the new manager takes them out of the relegation zone.
