Coppell, currently director of football at Crawley, has been linked with the vacant managerial job at Selhurst Park in what would be his fifth stint in charge of the Eagles.

Palace are on the hunt for a new boss after Dougie Freedman left to take over at Bolton this week.

Parish has spoken with 57-year-old Coppell but does not feel he fits the mould of what Palace are looking for.

He told The Sun: "I've had a chat to Steve, who has been incredibly helpful.

"But it's a different game to when he was last in charge and people tend to go for younger managers.

"We need someone who is hungry and enthusiastic. We want an experienced young boss but not a first-timer like Dougie."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
