Alan Pardew’s friend says hasn’t a clue where Crystal Palace story came from

7 years ago

The Alan Pardew to Crystal Palace story rumbles on with nothing resembling any substance to it.

There are more questions than answers regarding this latest bizarre twist at St. James’ Park an dit has more holes in it than Newcastle’s recent defending.

Now friend and former teammate during Alan Pardew’s entire playing career at Selhurst Palace, John Salako, has had his say on the Pardew to Palace story.

Speaking to Talksport, John Salako said;

“I can’t believe it and I don’t really know where this story has come from.

“He (Pardew) was linked the last time and I am sure he was asked  but obviously Alan is at Newcastle, a very big club, and doing a great job.

Massive job like Newcastle;

“I cannot believe that he would leave a massive job like Newcastle to come to Palace, at the moment.”

Travelling between Newcastle and London;

“Sometime in his career he’d love to come back because his family live in the south still and he has to travel between (London and Newcastle).

“It is one of those things and we would love to have Alan come down and manage Palace but with the financial restrictions and the position of Palace compared to Newcastle, I don’t think this will happen.”
