Crystal Palace sacks Frank de Boer after five games

Crystal Palace manager, Frank de Boer has been sacked following a poor start at the English Premier League.

According to BBC Sport, former England boss Roy Hodgson will replace him as manager.

“Crystal Palace Football Club have this morning parted company with Frank de Boer,” said a statement on the club’s website.

“We would like to thank Frank for his dedication and hard work during his time at the club.”

The Eagles have failed to score in their four league matches under De Boer.

The former Ajax boss was only in charge for five games and 77 days.

Palace chairman Steve Parish was at Turf Moor on Sunday, and said afterwards: “It’s a terrible start but we have to stick together.

“People are frustrated, I’m frustrated, so are the management and players. We know we are better than this.

“I’m defending everyone at the club who is working their backside off to turn this around. Football teams lose games. It happens.

“Who has the better squad, us or Burnley? We had a much weaker squad when we finished 11th. The buck stops with me; I’ve never run away from that.”
