'Is anybody surprised?': Some Crystal Palace fans react after 'predictable' update about manager search
Some Crystal Palace fans were reacting after the club ended their pursuit of Nuno Espirito Santo for their manager job.
According to Daily Mail, the Eagles ended talks with the Portuguese boss after a series of demands.
The Telegraph are claiming that the two parties clashed over backroom staff and the budget for their contracts.
Negotiations were at an advanced stage with claims last night an appointment was imminent. However, the deal has now been called off with Palace moving on to other targets.
The south Londoners are thought to be keen on Sean Dyche and Steve Cooper.
TBR View: Nuno deal a bitter disappointment for Crystal Palace
The failure from Crystal Palace to complete a deal for Nuno is a bitter disappointment in their search for a manager.
He would’ve been the perfect appointment for the Eagles after Roy Hodgson’s reign at the club.
There needed to be an injection of fresh ideas and the former Porto man could’ve provided it.
However, the failure to complete a deal is raises questions over the club’s lack of ambition to attract the right man.
Here is how fans reacted…
Why is our club like this 😭— Fred 🇵🇹 (@2Goals1Schlupp) June 9, 2021
Predictable that CPFC wouldn’t meet Nuno demands on backroom staff plus transfer budget but still very disappointing. Steve Cooper appointment won’t excite the likes of Zaha and Eze or boost Season Ticket sales at CPFC . Let’s hope Everton don’t get Nuno & we restart talks ❤️💙— neil ogilvie (@neiog) June 9, 2021
