Crystal Palace have been without a manager since Roy Hodgson departed at the end of the season. The 71-year-old boss had been in charge since 2017, and has left the Eagles firmly in mid-table since their initial promotion to England’s top flight.
After nearly four years of managing his boyhood club, Roy Hodgson will be stepping down as our manager at the end of this season.
Thank you for everything, Roy ❤️

Several names have been in the frame for the London role, including ex-Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, ex-Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe, and new Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espirito Santo.
Frank Lampard is back in the mix for the #cpfc managerial vacancy.

Ultimately, however, it was ex-Arsenal legend and former Nice boss Patrick Vieira that took up the task of filling Hodgson’s shoes, with the club announcing that the Frenchman had signed a contract to run until 2024.

Vieira took to twitter to confirm the announcement himself, saying that:
Proud and excited to be part of this new journey. I want to thank the CPFC board for their trust & thank the fans for the amount of support I’ve been getting for the past few days. I can’t wait to see you there, back where it all started
Come on you Eagles
