Eagles could return for former boss.
Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace could be about to offer former manager Neil Warnock an astonishing return to football management as they seek a replacement for the recently departed Ian Holloway, the Mirror reports.
The 64-year-old’s last appearance in a dug out came in April of this year as he hasn’t worked since then when he was dismissed from Elland Road and he has since been working as a pundit for BT Sport.
He had thought to be retired from football management as he claimed to have no interest in putting himself back out there to find another position elsewhere, though his stance is believed to have softened lately after he was offered a senior role at Birmingham City should their takeover, led by Gianni Paladini, go through.
The Eagles have sought to put themselves out there quickly in a bid to attract a new manager, and Warnock is believed to be one of the main candidates for the position.
The Sheffield-born gaffer previously took the reins at Selhurst Park between 2007 and 2010 when he guided the club to within a post’s width of Wembley before financial troubles took hold and the club was forced into administration.
