Alan Pardew Takes Over At Crystal Palace

Alan Pardew has been confirmed as the new  manager of Crystal Palace after being released from his contract with Newcastle United.
The 53-year-old's appointment is sort of a home coming as he returns to the club where he started his professional career as a footballer. He has signed a three-and-half year deal which will see  him succeed Neil Warnock at the Selhurst Park based side.

An official statement credited to Alan Pardew on the Newcastle FC website reads:
"It has been a privilege to manage Newcastle United and I want to thank my captain, Fabricio Coloccini, and all the players, John Carver, Steve Stone, Andy Woodman and all the staff, all of who have been outstanding servants to Newcastle United.

"A special thanks also goes to the fans for all their support over the last four years. I must also thank Mike Ashley and the board for their unwavering support during my tenure at the club."
On the Crystal Palace website, the 53-year-old was also quoted as saying:
"Everyone knows my history here, what's important now is to move the club to the next level. I believe, with the backing of Steve [Parish] and the board, I can help achieve that and create some new exciting history for the club."
Crystal Palace chairman,  Steve Parish sbelieves Alan Pardew is the right man for the job
"We wanted a manager with a great track record and proven experience in the Premier League. In Alan we have both these things as well as a man who has great affection for this club and shares my determination to take us to the next level", he said.
