Wed, Sep. 13, 2017
CAIRO – 13 September 2017: Roy Hodgson, former England`s coach, has been appointed as Crystal Palace manager, after Frank de Boer was sacked, on a 2 year contract.

De Boer was sacked on Monday after Crystal Palace had their fourth loss in their opening four games in the English Premier league with a 1-0 defeat to Burnley on Sunday. De Boer has had the shortest Premier League managerial tenure in terms of games, 77 days.

The 70-year-old has been out of management since quitting England after their defeat by Iceland at Euro 2016.

“It is very rewarding to find myself here now, in different times, as the Palace manager at a club that I have always loved and admired with a huge potential. We are the club of south London, with an enormously large fan base. The ambitions here are realistic and there is an enormous potential for growth and I hope we can achieve our goals,” he said to Crystal Palace official website.

“I am very excited to be back in club football and it is a long while since I have enjoyed the day to day sessions of training.” He added.

Hodgson had a great experience as he was the manager for West Bromwich, Liverpool, Fulham and Blackburn in the Premier League.
