Crystal Palace Sack Frank De Boer, to appoint Roy Hodgson as Manager

Frank De Boer has become the first managerial casualty of the 2017/18 Premier League as he has been sacked by Crystal Palace.

De Boer took over at Selhurst Park back in June and lost all four of his opening Premier League matches in charge of Palace.

Under him, Crystal Palace also failed to score a single goal.

The Dutchman's future appeared in serious doubt as Palace slumped to a 1-0 defeat away at Burnley on Sunday and the Eagles have now announced the 47-year-old’s departure.

Asked about speculation surrounding his future after this weekend’s defeat, De Boer said: ‘I’m focussing on what I can control and that was this.

‘I will probably speak to Steve [Parish] on the phone tonight as we normally do, and I meet with him in the week.

‘All I can do is work hard with the boys and I will do that until the end, and hopefully that will be a long time.’

Ex-England and Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has been offered a two-year deal to succeed De Boer and is set to be unveiled this week.
