Holloway backed by the Eagles board "100 per cent"
Ian Holloway is “100 per cent” the right man to get Crystal Palace out of the bottom three, according to Eagles co-chairman Stephen Browett.
Palace are up against Fulham on Monday at Selhurst Park and a win would take Ian Holloway’s men to within a point of Martin Jol’s men.
It has been a difficult start to life in the Premier League for Crystal Palace, with a win against Sunderland their only points of the campaign so far.
Some commentators have already written Palace off as relegation fodder with others putting Holloway down as the next manager to get the boot.
But Browett told the Croydon Guardian’s Eagle Eye show this week that he believes the former Blackpool manager has what it takes to keep Palace in the Premier League.
He said: “Ian is ever optimistic. He is a leader of men and he looks at the positives all the time.
“He is itching to work with players more. The big problem is, since the transfer window closed, we have had two international breaks, which are basically a fortnight each.
“We have had seven first team players away for that.
“So really Ian has not had much time to actually work with the players so that has been frustrating for him.
“Every day on the training ground is good and improves things."
He added: “Ian is a confident man and he has been there and done it before. We are all 100 per cent behind him as he has the ability to get us out of the sticky position we are in at the moment.”
