Alan Pardew says he could handle managing Emmanuel Adebayor if he decides to sign the 31-year-old striker.
The former Tottenham man is one of several forwards Palace have eyed in terms of a move in the current transfer window.
Of course, Adebayor is a free agent and has been training on his own with a view to landing a contract somewhere.
Pardew admits the former Arsenal and Spurs man isn't as high up on the agenda as some may think – but Palace are certainly monitoring the situation.
Getting a car of your own is a big part of growing up. Even if your motor is on its last legs or bears a striking resemblance to Simon’s yellow Fiat Cinquecento in the Inbetweeners, it’s still your pride and joy – except maybe in Simon’s case.
"For me, whenever Adebayor's played against my teams, he's been totally committed and he's been dangerous," said the boss.
"You look at his clubs, and of course there's been a fallout at Spurs over whatever but he remains a player that can have a great impact. He's one of those players who would improve us.
"I have had difficulty with players before, none more than Hatem Ben Arfa at Newcastle. If I can deal with him, I can deal with Adebayor, sure."
