According to Crystal Palace chairman, Steve Parish, the club is doing things well in the English Premier League and don’t need to be sold.

There were rumors that Crystal Palace might be sold soon.

But the English Premier League club is doing very well right now.

Crystal Palace is currently in the sixth position of the English Premier League table with 15 points.

And chairman Steve Parish believes the squad’s dynamic is changing for the best.

“It is clear what has changed in the Premier League is the Leicesters and Crystal Palaces don’t have to sell to survive, and if we think we can do more with the money we will, but we take everything on its merits,” he said to Four Four Two.

“If there is a signal that has been sent out this summer it is we will sell if it’s the right money, and if it’s not we won’t sell.”

Parish added: “What is interesting, and I have been doing this for 10 years, is it’s the first time I have come away from stadiums having played away where the big home teams are moaning about decisions.”

“The guy in the (VAR) box is making decisions based on what he sees. I think in spite of everyone’s best intentions there are other influences when it is just left to the referee.”

“On Sunday we play Leicester, who have fantastic, exciting 22 and 23-year-olds,” he commented.

“Five or six years ago people would say ‘you can’t play with that many kids in the Premier League’, so it’s fantastic.”

“How grown up and mature these guys are is impressive, and it is the other care around the boys that the Premier League and Cat One has implemented which has really gone a long way to making people more ready,” the chairman concluded.
