Lee Chung-Yong Slates “Hot Head” Pardew In Amazingly Critical Interview

0 Posted by - April 29, 2016 - News

Lee Chung-Yong has hit out at his “hot headed” manager Alan Pardew in an explosive interview in which he declares a desire to leave the club this summer. 

This astonishing outburst from Lee Chung-Yong sees him criticise Alan Pardew in almost every way imaginable. He’s fuming. 

Having not played that often since joining Palace from Bolton Wanderers in 2015, the South Korean has offered an astonishing rant in which he criticises his current boss on numerous levels.

No doubt frustrated at the lack of first-team opportunities afforded to him during his stay at Selhurst Park, Lee has suggested that the manager’s approach to team selection is to blame for Palace’s slump since Christmas and has all but demanded to leave once the season comes to a close. 

Despite an incredible strike to secure victory away at Stoke in December, the midfielder has struggled to win over the hearts of the Eagles supporters, or it seems, that of his manager. Understandably frustrated, you may have wondered whether or not he harboured private resentment of Pardew, but thanks to his recent outburst, we have seen a player break ranks in spectacular fashion to slate his manager. 

Quite how the club and Pardew in particular will approach this situation in the coming days will be of interest, given the extreme nature of the criticism put forward by Lee, but you can be almost certain that he won’t be on our books by August. 

Does a spell in the reserves beckon? I wouldn’t bet against it.

    He has a point Pardews use of substitutions is aweful plain aweful. I know we beat Watford but taking off bolasie the only real danger man was a joke. Then puncheon came off and the worst player in the world sako came on. If they had of drawn 2-2 then we had nothing attack wise in the tank to beat them. Like I said before Pardew stop making changes unless we r losing or it’s the last 10 minutes as u r crap at making them. Lee however can leave not a premiership player please take sako with you & we need to promote Kaikai to the first team.

    He kind of has a point. At the start of the season there was no point rotating as the form was too good. However when that went after christmas i can understand why he is disgruntled about not getting more games, especially with the injuries.

    I do think that if the squad players aren’t up to it its fair enough but most of them (Mutch, Lee, Sako etc) are Pardew signings so you’d think he would give them a go. Still, its shocking for a player to go to the press with this, must be really pissed off.

    Agree about getting Kaikai into the team, maybe Boateng too.

    I saw Lee play a full game in the Capital Cup and I missed his other performances. Mutch has had games, as has Sakho. None of Alan’s purchases have done well. But Alan has since Xmas pursued a long ball game up the middle without a big centre forward despite our early successes coming down the wings. Our standard of play would do badly in the Championship let alone the Premier League. If we stay up due to worse teams than us, we will be favourites for relegation next year. Over three years in the EPL we have not progressed, simply moved from marginal promotion to marginal survivors playing up and under football.
