Crystal Palace has confirmed the signature of English Manager Roy Hodgson on a two year deal. The former manager of England’s national team is set for the job in South London.

Hodgson is set to fill in the boots of Dutch manager Frank De Boer who was sacked after 77days.

Crystal Palace during last season found themselves in a relegation dog fight until Sam Allardyce came to the rescue for the side.

Palace this time round have also gone for the services of a veteran English manager after De Boer fluffed his line. De Boer lost his four consecutive games in the English without getting a goal from his charges.

Hodgson has rich experience in managing English football with stints at Blackburn Rovers, Fulham, Liverpool and West Bromwich Albion being the prime of his career.

Hodgson told the official Crystal Palace website that it was very rewarding to find himself there now, as Crystal Palace is a club that he has always loved and admired with a huge potential.

It will be lovely to note that Hodgson finally returns to manage a club that is based at where he was born.

Hodgson starts training with the club on Wednesday and will be in the dugout for the Eagles against Southampton.
