Crystal Palace ready to enter talks with ex-BVB coach Favre

Lucien Favre is being considered for the manager's post at Crystal Palace.

Sky Sports says Palace initially wanted to appoint a manager with Premier League experience but with the process dragging on and a number of players considering their futures, the club have decided to relax their requirements.

Favre, who was sacked by Borussia Dortmund last December is now under consideration for the position.

The 63-year-old is renowned for developing young players which is of great appeal to Palace, who want their next manager to utilise talent from their academy to supplement their first-team squad.

The south London club also previously considered Frank Lampard, Patrick Vieira, Swansea boss Steve Cooper and Barnsley's Valerian Ismael.
