Roy Hodgson to be sacked as Palace manager
Roy Hodgson looks set to be sacked as the next Crystal Palace manager but the big question is who will replace him. Typically, Palace play it safe when hiring new managers and some of the options available match their criteria with the likes of Graham Potter and Steve Cooper available.
Preston North End boss Kieran McKenna was the favourite to take over but the emergence of Oliver Glasner means that we could see a former Europa League winner in the Crystal Palace dugout soon!
Who is Oliver Glasner?
The 49-year old Austrian manager looks set to be the next Crystal Palace manager but who is he and why does he deserve the opportunity in the Premier League? Well, you just have to look at the accomplishments at Eintracht Frankfurt and Wolfsburg to see why he is a highly regarded manager in Germany. Glasner took Wolfsburg to the Champions League before leaving the club to join Eintracht Frankfurt, which looked an odd move on paper with the club in 5th. However, during his two seasons at the club, Glasner won the Europa League with Frankfurt took them to the knockout stages of the Champions League and finished as runner-up in the DFB-Pokal.
If Glasner can have half the success he has managed in Germany in the Premier League, then Crystal Palace fans will be very happy with their potential next head coach.
Next Crystal Palace Manager Betting Odds
Crystal Palace have been one of the most consistent teams in the history of the Premier League since their promotion in 2013. The club have finished in the positions 11th or 12th in five of those ten seasons. In the other seasons, they've finished 10th, 14th or 15th. They have never finished in the top nine positions or in the the bottom five positions. However, they have had seasons where the fear of relegation has been apparent due to poor starts to the season, in the end, they have always managed to pull it round and survive.
Will the same happen in 2023/24? Will Roy Hodgson still be Crystal Palace manager at the end of the season?
