'He's like a god', 'would be ideal': Some Palace fans wowed by who Parish is reportedly looking at as boss
The Crystal Palace manager search continues as the Eagles look to find Roy Hodgson’s successor.
And a report linking Palace to one particular candidate is proving especially popular amongst fans.
According to The Sun, the Eagles are eyeing Lucien Favre.
Palace manager search leads to ‘ideal’ candidate?
The 63-year-old, a former Switzerland international, began his coaching career in 1993.
Favre has managed the likes of Hertha Berlin, Borussia Monchengladbach, Nice and Borussia Dortmund.
And according to The Sun, he is keen on plying his trade in the Premier League.
The widely-respected coach is similar to Hodgson in many ways, added the outlet.
He has the ability to work in several countries and organise teams in various leagues.
Palace owner Parish has apparently pulled out of the chase for ex-Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo.
And he has also ended interest in coaches short-listed in domestic football such as Steve Cooper, Valerian Ismael and Frank Lampard.
Favre is a free agent and would not cost any compensation.
He also takes a small backroom staff with him which would suit Palace, added the report.
Eagles fans love the idea of Favre at Selhurst Park

Favre would be ideal. Plays attractive football, proven experience developing youth and introduce them into the first team, and he has the reputation to attract exciting new signings. #cpfc— Matt Webb 🦅🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@doctordubbs) June 16, 2021
