Crystal Palace names Neil Warnock manager
Crystal Palace named Neil Warnock its new manager, the club announced Wednesday.
This will be Warnock’s second stint with Palace, as he also managed the team between 2007 and 2010. Warnock, 65, replaces Tony Pulis, who left the team just two days before the start of the Premier League season.
Crystal Palace said that Warnock agreed to a two-year deal and will lead the team in their match against Newcastle United on Saturday.
The club has yet to earn a point this season in the Premier League, losing 3-1 to West Ham United last Saturday and 2-1 to Arsenal in the opener. Crystal Palace did score a 3-0 victory over Walsall in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday.
The appointment of Warnock comes after last week's Malky Mackay text messaging scandal, which cost Mackay the Palace job.
