Paulo Sousa in line for Crystal Palace - and possible Liberty Stadium date
FORMER Swansea City boss Paulo Sousa has been linked with the vacant job at Championship strugglers Crystal Palace.
Sousa is among the contenders for the job at Selhurst Park which was made available following George Burley's sacking last week.
Sousa, who left Swansea to join Championship rivals Leicester before he was sacked in October after just nine games in charge, is believed to have been interviewed already for the job.
If Sousa did get the job, his first league game in charge would see him back at the Liberty as Palace visit South Wales in a Sky-televised game next week.
Sousa's interest in the Eagles post is interesting considering his previous outburst towards the London club.
While at Swansea, the Portuguese claimed clubs like Palace should be relegated after falling into administration.
Sousa, who began his managerial career at Queens Park Rangers, could face competition for the job from Steve Coppell, Chris Hughton, West Ham's defence coach Wally Downes, Bournemouth's Eddie Howe and former Swans star Chris Coleman.
