Captain Mile Jedinak hopes Crystal Palace will act quickly to find the right man to take the club forwards following the shock departure of manager Tony Pulis.

It is a situation which is a little bit difficult to comprehend at the minute, but it is part and parcel of this game and the job we do.

You see things happen, but it is up to you as a footballer and as a professional to continue on with your job.

What happens is out of your control and something you cannot have an influence on, you just need to get on with it.

We did that and I cannot stress how proud I am of the group.

We all know how important it is to get a manager instated at the football club. For us it would be ideal (to be a quick appointment), but it is not up to us.

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."
