Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has backed Tony Pulis for the Crystal Palace job.

Former Stoke City manager Pulis has been widely tipped to take over at Selhurst Park and Wenger thinks it would be a wise choice.

"I heard that they wanted to go for a manager with experience," he said. "Pulis is one of them and of course, if he gets there, he will certainly play his way and demand huge commitment. He has done well at Stoke in the way he wants to play the game and he has been very efficient.

"I believe you can only be a good manager if you play with your gut feeling and that can be different. But you can only be good if you're completely in accordance with the way you see the game."
