A number of Crystal Palace fans have been reacting to more details on Lucien Favre’s proposed move to Selhurst Park provided by Michael Bridge.
It emerged on Wednesday evening that Favre has agreed to take over at Palace and become Roy Hodgson’s long-term successor.
Favre is now waiting to be awarded a work permit to manage in England, a complicated process that is already underway.
Thoughts on Favre?
I'm not so sure!
Sky Sports reporter Bridge reiterated on Twitter that talks between Favre and the Eagles went ‘very well’, adding that discussions regarding the players from the academy have also gone well.
The likes of Jesurun Rak-Sakyi and David Omilabu were two standout players from the club’s academy to sign professional deals last season, and it seems as if Favre likes what he sees in the club’s youth ranks.
Palace fans react
Bridge’s social media post received plenty of interaction from Palace supporters, with the majority excited about the pending appointment and mention of academy talks.
“We love you Bridgey and you know it!!”
“Lucien Favre is excited to work at palace and likes our academy If we pull this off I won’t doubt anything again”
“Okay, now might be the time to start to get slightly excited.”
