Derry leaves role as Crystal Palace first-team coach
Written by Training Ground Guru —
CRYSTAL PALACE first-team coach Shaun Derry has left the club after three-and-a-half years.
The 45-year-old, who made 226 appearances as a player for Palace during two separate spells, returned to the club as Under-23s Head Coach in September 2019.
He was then promoted to first-team coach by Patrick Vieira in August 2021.
At the time, Vieira said: “I really wanted to have somebody who knows the club up and down and Shaun's been here for quite a long time as a player and as a coach. He knows the players from the Academy as well.
“Nobody will talk about the club as well as Shaun so to have him as part of my staff is something that I'm looking forward to and it's been great to have him next to me."
Vieira’s remaining staff are assistant Osian Roberts, Development Coach Said Aigoun and first-team coach Kristian Wilson.
