Crystal Palace chairman makes BIG admission surrounding club amid manager search

Posted by

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has admitted that his club are in a relegation fight as they search for a new manager.

Parish was caught in his car by reporters following the news that Patrick Vieira had been relieved of his duties as Palace boss after the Frenchman failed to take Palace forward, with the team not winning a single game so far in 2023, joining Forest Green Rovers as the only other team to achieve that unwanted feat in England’s top four tiers this season.

When asked for a word to the fans for some reassurance on the current situation, Parish said: “Paddy and Darren are in charge, everything’s getting prepared for Sunday [vs Arsenal]. It was a tough decision to make because I have an enormous amount of respect for Patrick with what he did for us but this is a results-based business.

I’ve got to think about what the best thing to do is if we want to retain our status because now we have to accept we are in a dogfight with some good teams. Ultimately, I’ve made the call and we just have to move forward.”

The next few games are crucial ones for the Eagles, with Arsenal coming up tomorrow before some clashes with a few fellow strugglers including Leicester, Leeds United and Southampton
