Crystal Palace supremo: Neil Warnock has unfinished business at our club

NEIL Warnock has unfinished business at Crystal Palace, according to co-chairman Steve Parish.

After searching far and wide for a new manager, Palace appointed 65-year-old Warnock this afternoon.

It is his second spell as manager of the Eagles and Parish says he is the right man, at the right time.

"I think it's unfinished business with Neil," Parish said. "He's managed 1000 games and we're looking for Premier League experience, granted he hasn't had a huge amount of games at this level.

"He was relegated with Sheffield United but that was unfortunate with everything surrounding that.

"And he was doing OK with QPR. They weren't in the relegation zone in the time he was there. I don't he left because of results, it was because they wanted to go in a different direction.

"He has got experience of managing generally and a lot of experience at our club. "He is somebody I have known and someone I feel I can work with well.

"Neil will work on our success and will want to build continuity too. Instead of locking ourselves into a huge deal and committing in this sort of pressurised situation, we can get Neil in to steady the ship.

"He's on a two-year deal so the intention is he stays for those two years but I don't think he'll want to manage beyond that.

"I think it will be about when we want to bring somebody new in and Neil will work with us on that."

Parish confirmed Warnock will take charge of Palace's game at Newcastle on Saturday afternoon and is hopeful Eagles can get their Premier League campaign up and running.

"I don't think anybody can just plan to keep a team in the Premier League," Parish said. "You have got someone who tries to win every game and see where it takes you.

"No club will want to be in around the relegation zone going into the last few games of the season as anything can happen.

"You can have injuries or referees' decisions going against you, that type of thing. "Neil is going to try and win us every game and put us in a position going forward.

"We don't want to just avoid relegation by the skin of our teeth.

"Newcastle is a massive game so that is our priority right now."
