Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway tells a journalist he’s dropped after Southampton defeat
Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway sidestepped some searching questions after his side slipped to another Premier League defeat in comical fashion.
The Eagles boss refused to be drawn on what he would say to his players after the 2-0 defeat to Southampton.
Instead, he opted to turn the tables on the reporter posing the questions.
Mirror Football reports the post-match press conference went like this:
Journalist: What do you say to your players after a performance like that?
Holloway: Well you’ve got to earn the right to be a player before you earn that, my friend.
Journalist: I think I’m past that…
Holloway: I think you well are, to tell you the truth. I didn’t want to tell you that but, you ain’t playing for quite a few weeks yet, son. Sort your diet out, sort your fitness out. Don’t go red, I’m only saying you ain’t playing in my team.
