Alan Pardew appointed manager at new club – after less than 5 weeks at last job

On Wednesday, June 1, 2022, CSKA Sofia announced that Alan Pardew is no longer a manager, less than five weeks after his appointment on a permanent basis.

After Alan Pardew took charge of team affairs (originally on a temporary basis) on April 15, they managed just one win in the last seven games of the season in all competitions.

Alan Pardew and the club split, with the former CSKA Sofia boss (see below) blaming a minority of the club’s fans.

CSKA Sofia Official Announcement – ​​June 1, 2022:

‘army men,

Alan Pardew will not lead the CSKA team in the new season. Over the past ten days, the mentor and the leadership of the army have held numerous discussions, and finally made the decision of the British specialist not to continue his work on the “army”. He explained his motives to the club’s website:

“First I would like to thank all true CSKA fans for their support and passion for the club. Grisha and Dani Ganchevi for their efforts to move the club forward under such challenges and circumstances.

It was a privilege for me to be part of this club and to serve it! Unfortunately, my time here is over! The events before and after the game against Botev (Plovdiv) were not acceptable for me, my assistant Alex Dyer, or our players. The reason no one gave an interview after the meeting was that we were all very outraged by the escalated situation.

Our players have chosen to only play out of loyalty and to protect the club. The small group of organized racist fans that tried to sabotage this game is not what I want to lead and represent the team. This is definitely not the right way in favor of CSKA, because such a club deserves much more.”

Pardev’s decision follows a section of CSKA Sofia supporters who attacked their own team’s black players with racial slurs, with four players being verbally abused and also pelted with bananas.

Now, on Wednesday (September 14), Alan Pardew is back as manager.

Greek club Aris reveal the news.

I smiled when I saw them calling Alan Pardew “legendary” in the official release.

Ari’s official announcement – ​​September 14, 2022:

PAE ARIS announces the start of its collaboration with coach Alan Scott Pardew, as his full name is.

Alan Pardew, born on July 18, 1961 in Wimbleton, England, has signed a one-year contract (with an option for a further year) with our club.

The legendary English manager’s coaching career began just before 2000 with Reading, with whom he managed promotion from the Championship to the Premier League.

In October 2003, the British coach signed with West Ham, with whom he again rose to the top flight and also reached the FA Cup final in the 2005/06 season.

After three years at West Ham, Pardew left in December 2006 and within days took charge of Charlton Athletic.

Charlton’s relegation was inevitable that year and Pardew stayed with the club for another two years, trying to win back promotion to the Premier League. In November 2008, Pardew and Charlton Athletic parted ways.

His next team was Southampton, who were playing in League One at the time. Alan Pardew stayed at Southampton for one season (2009-10) and celebrated winning the League Trophy at Wembley.

In the middle of the following year he made the big decision of taking a seat on the Newcastle bench. It was there that he enjoyed the best five years of his career (2010-2015) as his side played good football, won exit to Europe and he himself was named the Premier League’s best manager for the 2011-12 season.

It was Crystal Palace who ‘snapped’ him from Newcastle with a very good offer in January 2015 and Pardew’s start at his new club has been amazing.

In fact, under his leadership, Crystal Palace reached the historic FA Cup final in the 2015/16 season, where they eventually lost to Manchester United. In December 2016, Pardew said goodbye to Crystal Palace.

After a brief stint on the bench at West Brom in the 2017-2018 season, our team’s new manager tested his skills outside of England, spending a year at Dutch Eredivisie club The Hague (2019-20).

Alan Pardev’s last job before moving to Greece was in neighboring Bulgaria for CSKA Sofia, first as technical director and then as coach (2020-2022).

As of today, Alan Scott Pardew is – and officially – part of the ARIS family!

* Alexander Constantine Dyer will become a direct partner of our team’s new coach, while Hristo Zahariev will take on analyst duties.
