Crystal Palace have announced the sacking of head coach Frank de Boer on Monday lunch time, after a disastrous start to the Premier League season.
The statement on the club’s official site read:
“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.
There will be no further comment at this time.”
The Eagles sit 19th in the Premier League after Sunday’s 1-0 loss at Turf Moor to Burnley – and have failed to find the net in any of their four league matches under the Dutchman.
De Boer takes the unwanted honour of being the manager with the shortest Premier League tenure in terms of games, managing just four.
Former-England, West Brom and Liverpool coach, Roy Hodgson, has been touted as the man lined up by Palace to replace de Boer.
An announcement from the club on Hodgson’s appointment can be expected as fairly imminent.
