KEITH Millen says he is "no rush" to leave Palace despite aspirations to manage again one day. The assistant boss had a previous stint at Bristol City in 2011 and 2012, and of course become caretaker manager for the Eagles last season following Ian Holloway's departure. But after forging a good working relationship with Tony Pulis in particular and enjoying the Premier League experience, Millen has put personal aims on hold to help Palace establish themselves in any way he can, calling it a "dream job". After picking up a win and a draw from his four games in charge before Pulis' arrival, some fans felt Millen had done a decent job and wanted him to continue his work. But the Croydon-born man played down those suggestions and was happy to see someone like Pulis come in, who he described as the "perfect appointment". "I always said the job wasn't right for me permanently at the time and it panned out that way," Millen told the Advertiser. "Tony's experience of the Premier League, the whole club needed, not just the playing side of it. "The whole club needed to get a Premier League mentality. It's all right talking about it but if you haven't been there and done it, it's very difficult to justify what you're saying. "Tony was the perfect appointment. The way the players responded was perfect for him and his experience of running a Premier League club is why we have gone from strength to strength. "I am in no rush to leave Palace. This a dream job for me working here. I am not going to walk away from that."For the full interview, don't miss today's Croydon Advertiser.
