#mustread #PremierLeagueStories on Dec 21 1992 – Back From the brink: #CrystalPalaceFC Boss #SteveCoppell thanks chairman for sticking with him

Crystal Palace boss Steve Coppell has thanked chairman Ron Noades for the most cherished Christmas present of all – his job. Coppell emerged from one of his blackest spells as a manager when Palace defeated Leeds 1-0 to record their fourth successive win to claw them closer to Everton in the relegation dogfight. But he admitted there were moments of self-doubt with Palace seeming destined for relegation, “There were doubts whether I was the right man to get Palace out of trouble and I said so. But it wasn’t an invitation to sack me. Luckily Ron showed faith in me as he has all along and I am grateful for that.”
