Crystal Palace ‘appointed’ Glasner and ‘fired’ Hodgson after the veteran is ‘taken ill’. £4 million manager “accepts” contract

Oliver Glasner has been “appointed” by Crystal Palace on a two-year contract, according to a report from football365, following Roy Hodgson’s “fire” by the Premier League team.

After being recruited in near the conclusion of the previous season, Hodgson led the Eagles to a successful finish that kept them in the Premier League.

The 76-year-old was supposed to be replaced by Palace last summer, but he signed a one-year contract to remain for the 2023–2024 season instead.

Although the London team had a strong start to the season, their unsettling collapse has left them five points above the relegation zone in 15th place in the Premier League.

Over the weekend, Crystal Palace was connected to England manager Gareth Southgate as a possible replacement for Hodgson, who has been under increasing pressure in recent weeks.

However, Glasner has lately surfaced as Palace’s top contender and has made a £4 million contract demand to take Hodgson’s place.
