Roy Hodgson set to be named next Crystal Palace manager
Hodgson will replace the departing Frank de Boer at Crystal Palace
September 11th, 2017
We have our first Premier League casualty of the new season, with Frank de Boer sacked by Crystal Palace after just four games in charge.
The Dutchman left Internazionale after a similar type of stint last season and it appears that owner Steve Parish has already lined up Roy Hodgson to take over as the new manager.
Hodgson has been out of work since England lost to Iceland at Euro 2016 and he walked away from international managerial duties, although the coach is a very experienced manager who has previously fared well at Fulham and West Brom.
Palace sit near the foot of the Premier League after a pointless start to the campaign and it wasn’t a particularly difficult opening run of fixtures, with Huddersfield and Swansea both visiting Selhurst Park and claiming wins.
Palace said in a statement: “Crystal Palace Football Club have this morning parted company with Frank de Boer. We would like to thank Frank for his dedication and hard work during his time at the club. A new manager will be appointed in due course and we wish Frank the very best of luck for the future.”
