CRYSTAL Palace chairman Steve Parish says he is looking to make a quick managerial appointment – and the chosen man will have Premier League experience.
Speaking on tonight's Match of the Day, Parish also said he didn't feel let down by Tony Pulis but added he couldn't have people that "aren't 100 per cent with us" at the club.
The chairman told Gary Lineker: "There was a good transfer budget agreed but there was a lack of targets that the manager was happy with
"I can't have people at the football club that aren't 100 per cent with us so I had to let Tony out of his contract.
"I can't be let down for what he achieved for us. He doesn't owe us anything and we don't owe Tony anything."
On Pulis' replacement, Parish said he wouldn't want a repeat of the month it took to recruit the former Stoke boss as Ian Holloway's successor, citing the transfer window as a reason to make a quicker appointment.
And with names like Malky Mackay and Tim Sherwood linked with a move to SE25, the chairman admitted Premier League knowledge would be a big priority.
He added: "Obviously we're looking for experience again. There are lots and lots of candidates .
"We won't be straying too far from someone who has an intimate knowledge of this league, either as a player or a manager."
