Crystal Palace first-team coach Steven Reid says he is taking a break from football for personal reasons.

The 37-year-old joined the backroom team last September, having played under Roy Hodgson at West Brom, and was an integral part in Palace's renaissance.

He announced on Twitter: "Just want to say a massive thanks to everybody at [Crystal Palace Football Club] for an unbelievable time at the club.

"A special club with special fans. Unfortunately for personal reasons it's time to take a break for a while. Been a privilege to work alongside the staff and a fantastic group of players."

Palace chief Steve Parish added: "Brilliant to have you with us last season Steven, made a fantastic contribution, good luck for the future from everyone at Crystal Palace."

Reid began his coaching career with Reading three years ago after ending his playing career while at Burnley. A Republic of Ireland international, he also turned out for Millwall, West Brom and Blackburn.
