Jordan: A palace that goes from ‘regular fingers’ to Cooper is a ‘risk’

Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has steered it’s a “risk” for the membership to appoint Swansea City boss Steve Cooper.

Palace is searching for a new everlasting manager. Roy Hodgson opted to leave the membership on the end of the season when his contract expired. The 73-year-old had been within the care of Palace since September 2017.

Hodgson led Crystal Palace to a 14th place finish within the Premier League in his final season on the helm.

Former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo was the principle contender to replace Hodgson. However Nuno and the membership have ended negotiations after failing to achieve a deal.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche and Cooper are actually linked to the Palace job.

Cooper has guided Swansea City into the top six within the Championship. The Swans lost within the semi-final of the video games to Brentford and spoke last month, Cooper insisted that he focus on that recreation over any hyperlinks to Palace:

“Our week isn’t for any particular person subjects or conversations.

“This week is sort of second within the play-offs for Swansea City and is doing every thing we will to get the proper outcome.

“I am in that bubble like everybody else proper now and just focus on that.

“Nothing will distract me or anybody else as a result of this week is simply too essential.”

Jordan was chairman of Palace from 2000 to 2010. He has informed talkSPORT (as quoted by HITC) the appointment of Cooper wouldn’t encourage Crystal Palace followers:

“(In current years) Tony Pulis, Alan Pardew, Roy Hodgson have all come in (at Palace). They’re regular fingers, ”said Jordan.

“Taking on a Championship man with great {qualifications} in managing young players is a risk for Palace. I do not assume it will encourage the followers specifically.

“Managing Swansea within the Championship could be very completely different from managing within the Premier League when it’s the end of the enterprise of elite players.”
