‘Great pedigree’ – Paddy McCarthy’s assessment of incoming Crystal Palace boss Oliver Glasner

Paddy McCarthy described Oliver Glasner’s appointment as a positive move for Crystal Palace as the Austrian watched on from the stands during their 1-1 draw at Everton on Monday night.

Glasner was alongside chairman Steve Parish and sporting director Dougie Freedman at Goodison Park after being appointed on a two-and-a-half-year deal on Monday afternoon.

Roy Hodgson stepped down before the game, with McCarthy taking charge of the team alongside Ray Lewington as the Eagles had to settle for a point.

Jordan Ayew opened the scoring midway through the second half, but a header from Amadou Onana denied Palace their first away win of 2024.#

Glasner took Enintratch Frankfurt and Wolfsburg to the Champions League and he also won the Europa League with Frankfurt.

“I haven’t met him,” said McCarthy of the incoming boss.

“It was announced as we were arriving for our pre-match meal today, so I haven’t had the chance to meet him.

“There were a couple of announcements today with Roy stepping down.

“He’s a manager with a great pedigree – a European winner.

“He’s coming into a group that I’m sure he’ll enjoy working with.

“It’s obviously a positive move for the football club and one that I’m sure will excite the fans.”
