Palace chairman Parish insists ‘good feeling here’ after Vieira dismissal

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish insists the club is a positive place after the dismissal of Patrick Vieira.

Vieira was sacked on Friday ahead of Sunday’s clash with Arsenal.

“The feeling is good. You know, everybody loved Patrick, genuinely. The players had all the time in the world for him. You saw from the performances he never lost the players at all, they were all running and playing for him,” said Parish.

“I think things just weren’t happening, so the mood was good, it was fine, but obviously we’re hoping that there’s a bit of fresh impetus, a few different ideas, maybe we surprise the opposition a little bit doing something different.”

Asked if this current squad had enough to avoid relegation, he added: “We’ve got good players, we’ve got a good squad, we’ve got good lads. They follow Patrick and they will follow Paddy and they will follow Darren and they will do the best for the football club.”

Parish went on to call Vieira, who managed the club for 20 months, “a great guy” and underscored that “people loved working with him”.

“I’m sure he will go on and be as successful as he was last year for us somewhere else, and he will maybe learn from the bits where it lost its way a little bit, and I really hope he does. It’s just football, isn’t it?” the chairman added.
