Millen unconcerned over Crystal Palace future

Keith Millen isn't concerned over his role at Crystal Palace ahead of their next manager appointment.

The caretaker manager expects to be replaced during international week.

"I've been through this kind of uncertainty before and you sort of harden yourself up to it," Millen told the South London Press. "It is more the effect it can have on my family, my wife and children.

"We made the decision to come back home and move down here from Bristol. So sometimes that uncertainty isn't easy to handle. We are settled back here and I'm loving being here at the club. That's probably the toughest thing for the family to have to deal with.

"But so much goes with the job that I don't really have time to think about things like that. I just have to deal with the here and now.

"There are so many parts to the job - the day-to-day running of the team, training and preparation for Saturday. If I'm not thinking about football then I'm sleeping!

"I've got enough to sort out and worry about to not be adding to them. I'll not worry about my own situation until the question arises.

"I don't know what the co-chairman's thoughts are. It's not just me - there are a lot of good staff at the club.

"Some managers these days don't generally come with big entourages unless they are one of the bigger managers who are strong enough to bring in a lot of people.

"I'm not sure what sort of demands will be given to whoever gets the job."
