Andros Townsend takes swipe at former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan: ‘You ran the club into near extinction’

Andros Townsend takes swipe at former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan: ‘You ran the club into near extinction’

Townsend aims dig at Jordan

Andros Townsend had a rather interesting Twitter exchange with former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan on Wednesday.

Jordan took over Palace back in 2000, with the Eagles in the Premier League.

However, they were relegated to the Championship in 2005, and didn’t return to the top-flight for several years following their former owner’s departure.

Jordan left the club in 2010, after Palace went into administration.

And now, Townsend has aimed something of a dig at the businessman on Twitter.

Jordan responded to a comment on a talkSPORT tweet, which suggested that Townsend would have liked him as Palace owner, as he would have increased his non-playing sub bonus.

The Palace forward, however, responded to said tweet, by stating:

Simon, you probably would have, which is why you ran the club into near extinction.

Brighton vs Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace are now set to turn their attention to a Premier League meeting with rivals Brighton this coming Monday.

The Eagles head into the tie in fairly patchy form, having lost three and won two of their last five.

Brighton, on the other hand, have found a bit of form in recent weeks, and are now unbeaten in five league outings.

And though it seems unlikely at this stage, both sides could technically yet be relegated, meaning they will no doubt be eager to pick up a win on Monday.
