Tony Pulis quit Crystal Palace days out from their Premier League opener, according to widespread reports.
Pulis was reportedly furious with Palace co-chairman Steve Parish regarding a lack of flexibility with transfers, with the Selhurst Park club one of the stingiest in the top flight in the close-season.
Palace brought in only Frazier Campbell and Martin Kelly, while Brede Hangeland came to the club as a free agent.
Pulis, 56, was named the Premier League manager of the season in 2013-14 after helping the club survive relegation after only being appointed in November.
