No rift with manager Holloway – Crystal Palace chairman Parish

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has out of hand rejected claims that he and manager Ian Holloway have been at loggerheads recently.

Reports have emerged that Parish and Holloway did not see eye-to-eye during the summer transfer window which led to the Eagles missing out on some targets.

However, Parish has denied that there is a rift with Holloway and says the club is working together to improve their standing in the Premier League.

"Ian and I spoke 123 times on the last day of the transfer window," Parish told the London Evening Standard.

"When reports came out that we weren't talking, that the board were unhappy and all that sort of stuff, we were in constant communication, at least 10 times a day.

"I can't give it a moment's credibility. It's ridiculous. There is just no grounds to any of it.

"Ian is our manager. We are very happy for Ian to be our manager.

"We all have a great working relationship and we're focused on one thing, the retention of our status in the league.

"Right now we couldn't be more together as a group of people and couldn't be more focused on the goals that we've got."
