Pardew admits to Defoe chase

first_img The former Newcastle manager grudgingly admitted Defoe’s goal scoring prowess could ease Sunderland out of the Barclays Premier League relegation battle. “I think it’s a good move for Sunderland to have secured Jermain, I think he’s a goal scorer and Gus (Poyet) will be the first to tell you they need more goals,” said Pardew. “So it’s a good signing for them. “We tried to get Defoe, but probably a bit late in the loop on that one. “I wouldn’t say we were that close, no. “It never really got to the stage where I got to speak to Jermain, so I would say we were not that close.” Pardew managed Defoe at West Ham before the prolific striker moved to Tottenham. The 32-year-old failed to warm to life in Toronto after leaving Spurs for the MLS a year ago. Defoe is on the brink of rubber-stamping his move to Wearside from Toronto FC, with Pardew conceding Palace were forced out of the race for the former England striker. Palace have secured Arsenal forward Yaya Sanogo on loan with new Eagles boss Pardew aiming to sign another striker during the January transfer window. Press Association Pardew was forced to admit the 55-cap forward could boost Sunderland’s firepower with the Black Cats one of Palace’s main rivals in the battle to avoid the drop. The Eagles’ new manager, however, warned that Defoe must first prove he is capable of playing week on week to fulfil his Sunderland brief. “He’s still got to step in, I don’t know the last time Jermain had a run of three or four Premier League games,” said Pardew. “He’ll be asked to start every week at Sunderland, so I think he’s going to have to grasp it quickly. “But he’s a goal scorer, he opens up the goal with both feet and gets goals that (make) you question your back four, he makes you think ‘how did he get that?’ “But that’s his ability, you don’t really know which side he’s going to go, and he makes it difficult to stop him scoring goals. “I think he’ll do well for them, I think it’s a good signing. “But it’s like anything, he’ll need a goal early, all strikers need that for his confidence.” Chairman Steve Parish has not shied away from his desire for prudent transfer market dealings to safeguard Palace’s long-term future. Neil Warnock replaced Tony Pulis at the helm in August but was sacked in December after a run of one win in 11 games. Pardew is itching to make changes at Selhurst Park, but vowed not to interfere with Parish’s financial planning. “The finances are so complicated, it’s so expensive, that you have to have a realism and understanding as a football manager that the football club must always come first,” said Pardew. “Our requests and demands can only be met to the maximum that the finances will allow. “And I wouldn’t want the club to put itself at risk, particularly this club, I know it well, and we’ve had tough times in the past. “Steve needs to make those financial decisions. “I can only ask as a football manager for what I think we need. “He’s well aware we need to get a couple more players in if we can, and I don’t want to put any more pressure on him than that.” Alan Pardew has admitted he failed to convince Jermain Defoe to sign for Crystal Palace over Sunderland. last_img read more

Guus Hiddink wants to see all his players take leading roles with Chelsea

first_img The ailing Barclays Premier League champions have turned to the Dutchman for a second time after naming him interim manager following the sacking of Jose Mourinho last month. Six years ago he helped steady Chelsea in the wake of Luiz Felipe Scolari’s departure and of that squad, only John Terry and John Obi Mikel remain. Among the reasons cited for Chelsea’s difficulties this season is the drop in form of Eden Hazard, the team’s playmaker-in-chief who will start Sunday’s clash with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Hiddink has not spoken at length with Hazard in an attempt to discover the source of his slump – but is confident he will soon begin firing once again. “First of all I think Eden is very versatile, he can play in various positions. On the wing he might give his best performances,” Hiddink said. “I haven’t experienced him as a coach in the past, but now I’ve had him just a few days because he was injured. He came back with a strong character and wanted to play. He is back in shape. “Normally, if a player has been injured he likes to take time to get into good physical and mental shape, but he was eager to play against Watford. “You could see when he was warming up, looking at me saying: ‘bring me on, bring me on’. That is an indication he can get back to the performance levels we are used to. “I’m not a psychologist who tells players to come in and lie on the couch and then I assess them you professionally. “I have short conversations in the dressing room or on the pitch. That’s when you smell how they feel and how eager they are. Eden smells well.” Guus Hiddink insists his Chelsea players must develop the on-field tactical leadership that was evident during his last spell at Stamford Bridge. Hiddink insists a manager has only limited influence from the bench and wants his players to take command when the whistle blows. “This team is a bit different to 2009. I’m not going to say worse or better, but different,” Hiddink said. “It was a bit easier last time because we weren’t down in the table and there were players with big international experience. “Look at the spine of that team – Didier Drogba, Michael Ballack, Michael Essien, Frank Lampard, John Obi Mikel, Alex. The centre was strong. It was a different team with different personalities. “What I’m asking now of players, is that they take the lead from central defence into midfield. “They must demand that of each other, not just in their commitment because they’re all committed – I’ve seen their intensity in training and in games – but also tactically because you can do a lot with two or three words to your companion in front of you. “People think we have a lot of power on the bench, but that’s not true. You can just prepare the team and make the substitutions. “I want the players to be in charge. To compare, there were a few more guys who took that tactical lead the last time I was here. Now I’m asking these guys to take the lead.” Press Associationlast_img read more
