Palace In The Media: Daily Mirror

20 December 2014

Saturday's Daily Mirror featured an interview by their Chief Sportswriter Ollie Holt and below are some of the points discussed.

Warnock’s promise: “I’ll Keep Palace Up”

Palace boss Neil Warnock has promised Eagles fans he will keep them in the Premier League.

Warnock, who has won a record seven promotions but never kept a team in the top-flight, told The Daily Mirror: “It’s the last question mark against me in my career, why couldn’t I keep a team in the Premier League?

“It’s the thing people are always going to level at me but that will change this season when Palace stay up”. 

Warnock told the Mirror’s Oliver Holt he still felt wounded by his sacking at QPR in January 2102 when the team was outside the bottom three.

“That was my biggest disappointment. The memory of that is one of the things that drives me on. I have always been motivated by proving people wrong”.

Warnock said that returning to Selhurst Park as manager of QPR, and being given a standing ovation by the Palace fans, had been one of the most emotional moments of his football life.

He admitted it would be “a real scrap” this season: “There are a lot of clubs who have spent decent money and everyone has got fight in them”.

He told The Mirror he would like to add more physical presence by signing a forward in the January transfer window.

“This will be my last job. I have said that before, I know, but this is a club that I love and these are fans that I love. I want to keep them at the top level and then leave them at the top level.”
