Crystal Palace reappoint Roy Hodgson as Patrick Vieira’s replacement

Crystal Palace has appointed Roy Hodgson as their manager for a second time, and he has resolved to keep the club in the Premier League.

In their last 12 league games, Palace has not achieved a victory and they have appointed 75-year-old former England boss Hodgson to steer them clear of the danger.

In May 2021, Hodgson concluded his four-year tenure at Selhurst Park and then made a surprise comeback to football with Watford last season. Unfortunately, Watford got relegated from the English top flight.

Hodgson returned to the club where he started his football career

After departing from the Hornets and declaring that he would not pursue another Premier League role, he was lured back by Palace, who dismissed Patrick Vieira last week.

After joining Crystal Palace, Hodgson said: “It is a privilege to be asked to return to the club, which has always meant so much to me, and to be given the important task of turning the team’s fortunes around.

“Our sole objective now is to start winning matches, and to get the points necessary to ensure our Premier League status.

“Crystal Palace is known for its fighting spirit, and I have no doubt that all our supporters will fight with us, beginning with the visit of Leicester City a week Saturday.”
