Former England boss Roy Hodgson has been named as Crystal Palace’s new manager on a two-year deal.

Hodgson replaces Frank de Boer, who was sacked on Monday after 77 days and five matches in charge.

The 70-year-old has been out of management since resigning as England boss after defeat by Iceland at the last-16 stage of Euro 2016.

He will take charge for Palace’s Premier League game against Southampton on Saturday at Selhurst Park.

Hodgson, who began his playing career at Palace, has previously managed Blackburn, Fulham, Liverpool and West Brom in the Premier League.

“This is very much the club of my boyhood. It is very rewarding to find myself here now, in different times, as manager at a club that I have always loved and admired with a huge potential,” he said.
