Crystal Palace sacks manager Frank de Boer

Crystal Palace has sacked manager Frank de Boer after just five games in charge following the south London side’s latest Premier League defeat and is understood to have lined up Roy Hodgson as his replacement.

De Boer arrived at Selhurst Park in the summer after signing a three-year contract when he took over from Sam Allardyce.

he Dutchman came under increasing pressure after his short-lived reign ended with a fourth straight Premier League defeat away to Burnley on Sunday before the club lost faith in the former Ajax and Barcelona defender.

Following Sunday’s defeat, chairman Steve Parish tweeted that the club needed to “stick together” suggesting De Boer may be given a stay of execution. However, on Monday morning the Dutchman was dismissed after just 77 days at the club and is expected to be replaced by former England manager Hodgson in the next 48 hours.

In a statement on the club website, Crystal Palace said: “Crystal Palace Football Club has 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.”

Under De Boer, Crystal Palace became the first team to lose their first four top-flight matches without scoring a goal since Preston in the 1924-25 season.

De Boer leaves the club with the unwanted record of having the shortest managerial record in the Premier League having managed for just four games  – which all ended in defeat.

Palace’s only win under De Boer came in the League Cup game with Ipswich Town who they beat 2-1 at Selhurst Park last month.
