Crystal Palace sacks Manager Alan Pardew amid poor club performance

Crystal Palace have sacked manager Alan Pardew with the club’s current standing at the 17th position the Premier League table.

Pardew was on a three-and-a-half year deal with the club in January 2015 but  Pardew has been dismissed after a run of just 1 victory in 11 games.

Palace have taken just 26 points from the 36 Premier League matches they have played in 2016 and are only one point above the relegation zone.

Former England manager Sam Allardyce is the frontrunner for the Crystal Palace job after Pardew’s sacking.

Chairman Steve Parish said: “We all bought into the decision to play a more expansive style of football. We all believed in it. That hasn’t worked. It’s no-one’s fault. The players have been running their socks off for Alan, the spirit is good.
