Alan Pardew has left Crystal Palace following defeat to Chelsea, the club have confirmed.
Pardew was appointed Palace boss in January 2015 and immediately steered the club away from relegation danger before leading them to the FA Cup Final last season.
But the 55-year-old won just six Premier League games in 2016 and leaves Selhurst Park with the club languishing just above the drop zone with 15 points from 17 games.
In a statement on the club wensite, club chairman Steve Parish said: “I would like to put on record our sincere gratitude for the tremendous service Alan has given us, both in his time here as Manager and previously as a player.
“Following a fantastic second half of 2014/15, the 2015/16 season culminated in only narrowly missing out on winning the FA cup as well as securing our Premier League place for a record breaking fourth time. During his tenure Alan’s hard work and dedication were without question, he has improved so many areas of the Club and we wish him the very best for the future.
“With games now coming thick and fast over the holiday period the Club are hoping to put someone in place as quickly as possible but have nothing to say about a replacement at this time.
