Petrescu rules out Crystal Palace post

Dan Petrescu has ruled out a return to the Premier League, having insisted his intent is to stay at Dinamo Moscow, writes TeamTalk.

The former Chelsea player has faced speculation suggesting a return to the England as manager of Crystal Palace, but the 45-year-old has insisted he is happy at the Russian club that he has managed since last year.

First, I want to say that I do not conduct negotiations with other clubs when I’m under contract. If they spoke to someone, it was only to my agent,” Petrescu said.

Secondly, I love England, I am pleased that the English clubs remember my name, and I would work there, but right now it’s impossible,” the former Romania international added. “The contract with Dinamo is for another year and a half and I’m happy here. I want to stay.

Ian Holloway lost his job at Selhurst Park almost a month ago and the position is yet to be filled, with several recent candidates to take the role pulling out of the running.

Chris Coleman signed a new deal to remain as Wales manager during the international break, whilst former Real Madrid assistant manager Aitor Karanka filled the Middlesbrough vacancy left by Tony Mowbray.

Tony Pulis has been the favourite to take the job since Holloway left, but the Premier League’s bottom club, who are six points from safety, are yet to make a move for the former Stoke City manager.
