Crystal Palace Midfielder Jason Puncheon Could Face Legal Action After Labelling Neil Warnock As 'Crooked'

Crystal Palace midfielder Jason Puncheon has accused former manager Neil Warnock of being ‘crooked’ and taking backhanders.

Puncheon reacted angrily after Warnock made a series of comments on TalkSport about his horror penalty miss in Saturday’s defeat to Tottenham.

Former Crystal Palace manager Warnock claimed that he would ‘never trust him [Puncheon] with a penalty’ and even claimed ‘a centre-half might have done a bit better’.

The winger soon took to Twitter to vent his frustrations at the comments from Warnock, whom he thought was in no position to speak on the matter:

However, soon after tweeting more personal and serious accusations, Puncheon deleted his posts but not before they could be picked up by the media.

Since the incident, Warnock has sought legal advice on the matter and has publicly denied any wrongdoing on his part.

The 65-year-old told the Guardian: “If it’s been suggested that I’ve done anything untoward I want to confirm that I most certainly have not.

“I have been made aware of his comments. Regarding the first tweet, everyone is entitled to their opinion and I haven’t got a problem with that.

“In his later tweets he’s made comments that I know nothing about and if it’s been suggested that I have done anything untoward I want to confirm that I most certainly have not.”
