Tony Pulis leaves Crystal Palace
Manager Tony Pulis has left Crystal Palace by mutual consent.The 56-year-old met chairman Steve Parish as tension between the pair came to a head.
The former Stoke boss, who won the Premier League's manager of the year award last season, had been frustrated by the failure to land a number of summer transfer targets.
Assistant manager Keith Millen will be in temporary charge of the club.
On Friday, Palace issued a statement, saying: "The club would like to thank Tony for his efforts with the club last season and wish him all the best for the future."
Bookmakers' odds had tumbled on as speculation over the Welshman's job intensified.
Malky Mackay and David Moyes were suggested as potential candidates to replace Pulis by former Palace defender Matt Lawrence, speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live.
The remainder of Pulis's coaching staff - including Gerry Francis and Dave Kemp - have left the club.
Pulis wanted to assume greater control of all football matters at Selhurst Park, especially transfers, after missing out on a number of key targets.
He and Parish also disagreed about their vision for the club.
Palace signed Liverpool full-back Martin Kelly on Thursday, while striker Fraizer Campbell arrived from Cardiff for £900,000 and former Fulham centre-back Brede Hangeland have joined on a free.
Just hours before Pulis left, Kelly told the club's official website: "I'm looking forward to playing under Tony and playing regular football again."
Hangeland also picked out Pulis as one of his reasons for moving to Selhurst Park, saying: "All the things I've heard about this club - the manager, players, staff - it's all been good."
Pulis left Stoke last year after seven years at the Britannia Stadium, having guided the Potteries outfit to the Premier League and kept them there, extending his record of never being relegated.
Palace were bottom of the table when he was named as Ian Holloway's replacement
