Marange 'disgusted' at Crystal Palace treatment

The Frenchman, one of 16 summer signings made by Ian Holloway, was not included in the Eagles' 25-man Premier League squad and is furious at being swiftly discarded
Crystal Palace newcomer Florian Marange is "disgusted" after being left out of the club's 25-man Premier League squad.

The 27-year-old, who signed on a free transfer in August, slammed the London club for not giving him a fair opportunity to impress until, at minimum, the post-January transfer window resubmission of squads.

Marange, who spent over 10 years at Bordeaux, revealed that he was not aware of the requirement to name a group of 25 players eligible for matches and admits that he may be forced to leave the club.

"I am disgusted," he told L'Equipe. "If I knew that rule, I would have asked to add a clause on my contract.

"How could you judge a player in 10 days?

"I was not presented to the press. I never had any official photo and I am still waiting for my club suit. I stayed for a fortnight in a hotel before settling in a house and the officials told it was up to me to pay the bill.

"It is a real hassle. I have a good contract, I am earning a bit more than in Bordeaux but living in London is 10 times more expensive and I came to play.

"Either I cancel my contract or I am waiting for the winter transfer market to find a new club."

The Frenchman will now speak with club chairman Steve Parish before deciding on his next course of action.
