Parish Claims Warnock Is a Safe Pair Of Hands

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has claimed that the club’s new manager Neil Warnock is a safe pair of hands and that the club can look forward to staying in the Premier league under his regime. Warnock was appointed as the Crystal Palace manager for the second time in his career. He will be taking over from Tony Pulis, who left the job just a few days before the start of the new season. The 65-year-old previously managed the club for a period of three years between 2007 and 2010 before joining QPR.

Warnock has previously managed clubs in the Premier League, but he has so far been unable to keep them in the division. This will be a chance to prove his doubters wrong, as Crystal Palace are once again expected to be in the midst of relegation trouble. Pulis did a great job to get the club player of relegation trouble and almost in top four qualification form last season. The good work done by him during pre-season will go a long way towards helping Warnock settle immediately to the club. After back-to-back defeats in the opening two matches, Crystal Palace go to St James’s Park in order to take on Newcastle United.

Their next few matches look winnable with the likes of Leicester City and Burnley as their opponents.

“It’s not so much about being relieved, it’s about being happy that we’ve found the right person. I’ve known Neil since the club went into administration. He’s someone who’s always been helpful to me and offered advice and I think he’s a safe pair of hands for us right now. He’s got unfinished business in the Premier League. As we all know he went down with 38 points, which would have kept you up last year, and in unfortunate circumstances with Sheffield (United in 2007),” said Parish.
