Premier League dream over for Warnock

Published Add your comment

Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock has admitted his dream of managing in the Premier League again has been wrecked by the club's slide into administration.

Palace gave Championship leaders Newcastle a real fright a day after their plight worsened, and Warnock headed south for a meeting with joint-administrator Brendan Guilfoyle in the dark as to his own future and the implications for his squad.

Warnock said: "I am disappointed because in all honesty, I don't think I have seen a better team than us over the season and I think we could have gone up, so I am bound to be disappointed, at 61, that I have not got a chance of going up when I want to."

Warnock was told not to play star forward Victor Moses in Wednesday night's 2-0 defeat at St James' Park - he later insisted he would have been dropped anyway - as a series of suitors prepare to make their moves.

He added: "I don't feel we ought to decimate the squad. Yes, if he [the administrator] has got problems, Victor and the odd one other, but if we are talking four or five, then I can't walk across the water just yet.

"It's difficult playing in the Championship with eight players. I would find it very difficult to put a team out with eight players."
