Frank De Boer Sacked as Palace Eyeing Hodgson for Replacement

Frank De Boer’s managerial career after departing from Ajax Amsterdam hasn’t been that exciting it seems as the Dutchman found himself getting an early sacking once again.

Being forced to step down as Inter Milan last season, this time around, De Boer face similar fate with his Crystal Palace.

Suffering a fourth consecutive league defeat last weekend, the former defender saw his managerial career at Selhurst Park ended after just that four games.

Despite previous backing support from the club’s president last Sunday, a statement from Palace on Monday stating otherwise as they announced De Boer’s parting as their manager.

Announcing that decision via the club’s official site, Palace also ensured that a replacement will be appointed as soon as possible, while adding their good luck wish for the club’s now former tactician.

Although no official statement has been made regarding potential successor, reports from England claiming that Roy Hodgson as the strongest candidate that the club are seeking.

The former England boss seem to be highlighted as potential best option for Palace,  though he hasn’t managed any premier league teams since 2012.

Meanwhile, De Boer himself admitted that he was very disappointed with The Eagles’ decision, but the Dutch tactician still thanked his players, staffs and everyone who helped him during his short stint at Selhurst Park.
