Tony Pulis has revealed that he cannot guarantee he will be the man to lead out Crystal Palace next season but insists he is happy at the club.
Pulis took over from Ian Holloway in November with the Eagles struggling to adapt to life in the top flight and floundering in the bottom three.
However, the former Stoke boss has been able to turn around the fortunes of the newly promoted club and has guided them to safety at this stage of the campaign.
The 56-year-old was named manager of the month for April following a run of four wins, which included victories over Chelsea and Everton, and just one loss.
The London club guaranteed their survival with a 1-0 win over West Ham last month but Pulis remained tight-lipped about next term.
Pulis said: “You can never guarantee I’m going to be here next season.
“You take every day as it comes. I’m very, very proud to be stood here as manager of Crystal Palace and that we’re still a Premier League football club next season.”
The Welshman has admitted that he has encountered a number of problems with co-chairman Steve Parish in the early stages of his tenure but he insists the relationship has improved.
He continued: “In the first couple of weeks Steve and I had our moments but the longer the season has gone on the closer we’ve got.
“Our relationship, which I think is the most important at a football club, has got more and more solid. I had a fantastic relationship with my last chairman at Stoke – the way we thought and worked things out was one of the main reasons why that club was so successful.”
