Crystal Palace caretaker Millen not the right man for the job

Keith Millen has declared himself not the right person to become the permanent manager of Crystal Palace.

Keith Millen has declared himself not the right person to become the permanent manager of Crystal Palace.

The Eagles assistant stepped up to the plate for last weekend’s 2-0 loss to Arsenal following the departure of Ian Holloway last week but has quickly played down suggestions he could be the man to succeed the former Blackpool boss.

"Probably the type of manager that needs to come in to look at this group from the outside would be a fresh view on what is needed, maybe some different ideas," said the Croydon-born Millen.

"I have worked closely with the players now for a long time and I enjoy it, but I think someone from the outside coming in will give us a little bit more of a lift. It is right that I don't put myself forward for the job.

"I loved it, I really did and I have missed it, but I enjoy coaching the players as well.

"To be in charge of Crystal Palace in the Premier League was a dream come true.

"I enjoyed the whole experience, but I was disappointed we didn't get something from the game because we deserved it."
