Published Add your comment

Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock warned his Swansea counterpart Paulo Sousa that Shefki Kuqi's form may only be temporary.

The former Eagles striker scored the only goal of the game as Sousa's men recorded a 1-0 victory at Selhurst Park.

But Warnock said: "He always starts well at a club, so I'm sure he'll do well for a few months. We'll have to see. I never had a problem with Shefki. It wasn't his fault that somebody paid stupid money for him."

Warnock was critical of Sousa for his comments in the build-up to the game regarding Palace's administration, and he added: "Paulo is a good manager, but he has a lot to learn. He should keep his mouth shut when he doesn't understand the circumstances."

Sousa himself insists he was misquoted over his apparent claim that Palace should be relegated for entering administration, saying he has a "deep respect" for the club.

But Warnock fumed: "It's already done. You write the story and then say sorry after.

"Anybody can spout off when you're fourth in the league, I didn't hear him spouting off at QPR. There's a time and a place for managers to say something and that's not in the press."
