Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that Ian Holloway's departure from Crystal Palace was "harsh".

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hailed the "talent" possessed by Ian Holloway following his departure from Crystal Palace.

The 50-year-old left Selhurst Park this week by mutual consent after picking up just one victory out of eight Premier League fixtures.

Pressure surrounding Holloway's job mounted following Monday night's 4-1 defeat to Fulham, but Wenger thinks that Holloway's departure was a "harsh" outcome.

"Ian Holloway has exceptional talent to manage a football team, it was harsh to see him go," Wenger said in a press conference.

Wenger's Arsenal side will face Palace at Selhurst Park tomorrow.
