Tim Sherwood has spoken of his admiration for Tony Pulis - the man he is tipped to succeed as Crystal Palace manager.

Palace announced on Friday that Pulis had left Selhurst Park by mutual consent after reportedly falling out with co-chairman Steve Parish over transfer policy. Sherwood and former Cardiff boss Malky Mackay are the front-runners to take over.

In his column in The Independent, the former Tottenham manager said: "He did a brilliant job at Crystal Palace last season but modern management encompasses a lot more than just what happens on the pitch. I know that from my own experience.

"It will be interesting to see what details emerge about Tony and Palace's decision to part company. All I can say from the perspective of a manager is that he did a wonderful job. He has the admiration of the coaching fraternity."
