Western Sydney Wanderers would not stop Popovic leaving for Palace job

Western Sydney Wanderers chairman Paul Lederer will not stand in Tony Popovic's way if Crystal Palace look to him as a replacement for sacked manager Neil Warnock, reports Sky Sports. Popovic is one of the favourites to take over at Selhurst Park, where he played for six years, although another former Eagles player and Newcastle boss Alan Pardew remains firmly at the head of the market.

Reports in the Sydney Morning Herald claimed Palace had contacted Popovic about the job already, although nothing has been confirmed by either party, and Lederer is awaiting talks with his manager.

"I'm absolutely sure we'll be discussing it," said Lederer. "It could be as early as Tuesday or the day after, we'll certainly be discussing it.

"Absolutely. If he was bettering himself and went to the EPL and he got the top job, I'd be wishing him all the best and good luck to him."
