Neil Warnock Claims Palace “Need A Director Of Football” Put In Place

Neil Warnock has told reporters that both he and the club’s owners feel there is a need for a Director of Football to be put in place sooner rather than later, after the departure of Iain Moody at the start of the current campaign.

Despite the fact that we worked our way through the conclusion of the summer transfer window pretty successfully, it’s clearly a role which numerous people inside the club feel needs filling once again, particularly as we cast our eye towards January.

He said:

“It’s an important role and one that Palace need. We’ve talked about a number and I’ve given my own suggestion as well and I think we’ve got to look at every aspect of that.

“Not just ‘am I gonna deal with him’, I’m on about the whole structure of the club.”

With Warnock recently admitting that his advancing years hinder the potential for him to remain the Palace boss in the long-term, the logic behind having a Director of Football who acts as a consistent guide over the style and direction of the club does seem to make sense.

Admittedly, Moody’s incumbency didn’t end in the best of circumstances, but it feels as though the board are keen to give another man the chance to impress in the same role.

Who that person will be remains a total mystery.

BREAKING: American Billionaire In Talks To Buy Crystal Palace

According to reports in America, Josh Harris, the owner of the New Jersey Devils is close to agreeing a deal to buy Crystal Palace Football Club.

Whilst no official word has been made on the negotiations, stories of an imminent deal are all over American sporting and financial media outlets, with sources said to have direct knowledge of the talks saying that discussions are already at an advanced stage.

Should a deal be made, Harris would become the fifth American owner in the Premier League alongside the Glazer family, John Henry, Stan Kroenke and Shahid Khan, but as of yet, details of the negation a remain relatively scarce.

Having purchased the Philadelphia 76’s in 2011, Harris added the New Jersey Devils to his stable last year, with a potential deal for Palace seemingly something of great interest to him, given our current status as a Premier League club.

Harris’ net worth, as of March 2013, was estimated at $2.1 billion.
