Crystal Palace football club have sacked manager Frank de Boer after four consecutive losses in the English Premier League 2017 season.
Palace lost their last clash against Burnley 1-0 which was enough to convince the club administration that the Dutchman was not the right man for the job.
The sacking comes just after 77 odd days of the manager joining Palace. Crystal Palace have now lost four starting games of the season. Also, no goal has been scored by the team yet.
The club’s season began with a cracking defeat against newly promoted Huddersfield who absolutely outplayed them in a 3-0 victory and what followed next was a defeat against Liverpool and Swansea.
Surprisingly, this decision comes after a convincing performance by Palace in their last outing at the Turf Moor. Those who watched the game would know that Frank de Boer’s men were a better side against Burnley.
According to reports, current England manager Roy Hodgson is being tipped to replace the Dutchman and is expected to sign a 2-year deal if he joins the club.
Boer replaced Sam Allardyce as the club’s manager on June 26, 2017 and has been sacked after 10 weeks in charge. His reign becomes the shortest among all managers in Premier League.
