Millen: Palace is a top job

Keith Millen is convinced Crystal Palace's problematic managerial search will not prevent quality candidates from applying for the job.

Tony Pulis left Selhurst Park just before the start of the Premier League season and they have struggled, losing their opening two games of the new campaign under the temporary stewardship of Millen.

Malky Mackay appeared to in line to take over but he was forced out of the running after the FA launched an investigation into former employer Cardiff's allegations he sent racist, sexist and homophobic text messages.

Tim Sherwood has also pulled out of the running, leaving Neil Lennon and Steve Clarke as favourites for the role.

"The manager's job is a good job for anyone, there's plenty of people that would want it," said Millen.

"You look at the squad we've got, and if we can add two or three to that we'll be fine.

"The fans are the best in the league for me, so there are no issues about maybe trying to attract the right people: it's just maybe whether the chairman's found the right one yet.

"It is a great job, I think any job in the Premier League is. I know the people at this club and I can honestly say it's a great club to work for.

"I don't know the timings and dealings of Malky, Tim, the conversations they've had. Obviously Tim's said what he's had to say.

"It's certainly a good job for someone though.

"The chairman still has his views on what he wants, and I think that's why he's openly looking still, and I think that will continue."
