Tony Pulis Leaves Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace manager, Tony Pulis, has left the London-based club by mutual consent due to his dismay with the club’s transfer strategy.

Pulis, who beat Manuel Pellegrini and Brendan Rodgers to the Manager of the Year award for last season’s Premier League, departs the club just days before they take on Arsenal on their opening fixture of the new campaign on Saturday.

Pulis held talks with the club’s co-chairman, Steve Parish, on Thursday evening, after which he decided to leave the club because of his disagreement with the transfer strategy of the club.

Palace have signed Fraizer Campbell and Martin Kelly in cash deals this summer, while Chris Kettings and Brede Hangeland have arrived for free. However, the club missed out on deals for Gylfi Sigurdsson and Steven Caulker who moved to Swansea and QPR, respectively.

Assistant coach, Keith Millen, will take charge of Crystal Palace for the match against Arsenal at the Emirates stadium on Saturday, with Malky Mackay favourite to take over managerial duties on a permanent basis.

Neil Lennon and Steve Clarke also feature prominently on the bookmakers’ list after a day where Palace’s odds for relegation have taken a turn in the wrong direction.

Pulis took over the managerial position from Ian Holloway, when the club found itself in the bottom three, and he guided them to an 11th place finish, keeping them in the Premier League for the first time in five attempts.
