Palace to decide between Clarke and Warnock

Wednesday 27 August 2014

Crystal Palace’s search for another new manager looks to be nearing its end as the club narrow down candidates to either Steve Clarke or Neil Warnock, the BBC is reporting.

Previous manager Tony Pulis left the club just two days before the start of the new season after tensions between him and chairman Steve Parish reached an impasse – rumoured to be over the failure to land key transfer targets.


Pulis had originally replaced Ian Holloway midway through last season and managed to successfully steer Palace to safety – and in fact their highest ever Premier League finish in 11th whilst also claiming the Premier League manager of the year award.


Palace were thought to favour former Cardiff boss Malky Mackay but chose to look elsewhere after Mackay became involved in fresh allegations over inappropriate text messages – while next runner Tim Sherwood decided to pull out of the running for the post.


It is now thought that after holding interviews with the pair this week either Clarke or Warnock will get the nod as the club look to quickly resolve the crisis.


Warnock has previously managed Palace between 2007 and 2010 but saw his tenure end with the club entering administration and incurring a ten point deduction – taking them from play-off contenders to relegation battlers, narrowly avoiding the drop.


Warnock last managed at controversy ridden Leeds before parting company with the club in April 2013, and recently turned down the chance to manage Nottingham forest.


Clarke hasn’t managed since his sacking by West Brom back in December despite leading them to their highest ever finish since 1981 – eighth.


Before his first managerial appointment the 50-year-old Scot had coached at Chelsea, Liverpool and West Ham.
