Tony Pulis tips Alan Pardew to be next England manager

September 20, 2020 0 Comments

first_img Hodgson is contracted to the Three Lions until July 2016 with the Football Association delaying fresh talks ahead of next year’s European Championship and Pulis believes Pardew must be in the running whenever a change comes. “I’ve heard people say Alan has spent a lot of money since he’s been there but he’s done a fantastic job,” he said. “When you look at Alan’s record over the years he has been as good as anyone and I know Roy will want to do this Euros and most probably the next World Cup but if you are looking for the next England manager Pardew has got to be looked at. “He is definitely one who would come into the frame. He’s done very well wherever he has been. He did a fantastic job at Newcastle and I don’t think he got the credit he deserved there. “He has been to Palace and picked it up. They have given him money to spent but he’s got players like (Yohan) Cabaye who have come in and done exceptionally well. “He deserves a lot of credit.” Pulis returns to Selhurst Park having left in August 2014 after steering the club to safety in the top flight in 2013-14, winning the Barclays Premier League Manager of the Season. He is without defenders Jonas Olsson (groin) and Gareth McAuley (calf) while Salomon Rondon is also expected to miss out with a back injury he suffered in the 3-2 defeat to Everton on Monday. Press Association The Baggies lost a 2-0 lead against the Toffees and Pulis knows their away form has been key with the side earning seven of their eight points this season on the road. “Monday was a bad knock for us, we didn’t deserve to lose the game,” he said. “The home games were always going to be tough. Everton have been a top eight team, Southampton have been exceptional and then we had Man City and Chelsea. What’s been very good is the away form and that’s subsidised the lack of points at home.” Baggies head coach Pulis reckons Crystal Palace manager Pardew deserves to be in the running for the job when Roy Hodgson eventually leaves. Pulis goes back to his former club on Saturday with Pardew having guided the Eagles to seventh in the Barclays Premier League after some fine early-season form. West Brom chief Tony Pulis believes Alan Pardew could be the next England boss. last_img read more
