Millen enjoying Crystal Palace role as manager search continues

Keith Millen suggests he is no rush to leave his role as interim manager at Crystal Palace.

The 47-year old Croydon-born former defender currently holds the caretaker job at Selhurst Park following the departure of Ian Holloway late last month and says he is enjoying his work as the south London club continues to look for an apt full-time replacement.

"I'm happy to carry on doing it until the chairman feels he's found the right person," Millen told Sky Sports News. "We're not in panic stations.

"The players are in a good frame of mind. They trained on Monday morning and we're trying to stay focused on Saturday's game [against Hull City].

"I spoke to the chairman [Steve Parish] on Sunday. He asked me to organise this week's training and prepare for the Hull game on Saturday. That's as much as I know at the moment.

"I am pleased that the chairman has showed trust in me. He's not had to rush into filling the position and that's good from my point of view."

Millen has overseen three Premier League matches with Palace which have resulted in 2-0 losses to Arsenal and West Bromwich Albion and a scoreless draw with Everton last weekend.
