Jordan: I will sell Palace

Published Add your comment

Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has revealed his intention to sell the Championship club.

Jordan, who bought Palace out of administration in 2000, says he has grown disillusioned with the game and the final straw was the recent decision of a Football League transfer tribunal to award the club only £700,000 following 16-year-old John Bostock´s move to Tottenham.

Jordan said: "Without a shadow of a doubt, this is my last year. I´ve taken the club as far as I can. I am not demotivated by the team, manager or fans. But I have been disillusioned with football for a long time."
