Speroni hopes for Eagles stay

Crystal Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni says he would like to coach at Selhurst Park once his playing days come to an end.

Speroni is currently third choice behind Steve Mandanda and Welsh number one Wayne Hennessey but he is still loving life with the Eagles, and wants to stay in some capacity when he retires.

The keeper has been with Palace for 12 years but there are questions marks over his future, as his current deal is due to expire at the end of the season.

"Eventually I will probably go into coaching, whether it is here or somewhere else," Speroni said.

"I have played at this club and I would love to stay here for all my career and beyond. But I am not thinking about that as I am still thinking very much as a player.

"I feel that I still have got years ahead of me, so I am not worried about that right now. But I love football, it has been my life and I do want to stay involved."
