Southampton: Mauricio Pellegrino confident of result against Crystal Palace

Southampton: Mauricio Pellegrino confident of result against Crystal Palace

And while Palace will surely show more faith in 70-year-old replacement Roy Hodgson, an experienced "safe pair of hands" appointed to guide the club through the mess rather than revolutionise their style of play, question marks will undoubtedly be asked if he too endured a hard start to life with the London club.

In the official statement on the club's website, Crystal Palace said, "Crystal Palace Football Club have this morning parted company with Frank de Boer".

A first-team coach will be appointed after the departure of Sammy Lee, who joined the club with then manager Sam Allardyce last December.

But Hodgson, the oldest manager appointed to a Premier League position, insisted the Eagles could bounce back from their woeful start to the season and remain in the Premier League.

"The pressure has always been there and it'll only get stronger", Hodgson told talkSPORT on Wednesday.

"I'm certain we will pull away from the mire and I'm very confident the players we have here will help us achieve our goal, which is to make certain we don't get relegated".

Hodgson will be joined at Selhurst Park by his assistant from Fulham and England, Ray Lewington.

But his time in charge of England ended with a shock defeat by outsiders Iceland that saw the team knocked out of Euro 2016. "I think we changed the team around and the young, exciting team you see today is the team I was putting together".

Crystal Palace is now nineteenth in the Premier League table.de Boer had signed a three-year contract with Crystal Palace on June 26, but his team lost all four Premier League matches played so far.
