Who could replace De Boer as he’s reportedly sacked?
FootyOn give next Crystal Palace boss tips as Frank de Boer is reportedly sacked at Selhurst Park.
The Eagles were one of three pointless Premier League sides going into matchday four of the new season.
Dutch boss De Boer had one game left to save his job, according to the tabloids and his team went 1-0 down to Burnley.
He only replaced Sam Allardyce towards the end of June, so the Palace hierarchy barely gave De Boer a chance.
Who is in the running to be the Eagles’ seventh permanent manager since getting back into the Premier League in 2013?
Read on as we reveal our next Crystal Palace boss tips, with quoted odds from Paddy Power‘s market…
Roy Hodgson odds head early betting
As mentioned when the Eagles were last looking to make a managerial appointment, ex-England boss Hodgson was a Selhurst Park trainee in the mid-1960s.
It’s been widely reported in the national press the 70-year-old is willing to step in now Palace have sacked De Boer.
Hodgson did a similar thing at Fulham, albeit later in the season, when Lawrie Sanchez lost his job.
Not only did Hodgson steer the Craven Cottage club away from relegation in thrilling fashion, but he also took them on a subsequent run to the Europa League final.
Based on that good work across the capital and a 40-year coaching career, Hodgson is a firm 1/25 favourite to take over.
Sean Dyche bets interesting
As the Eagles lost to Burnley on Sunday, there’s a certain irony in Dyche playing a part in De Boer’s downfall.
Linked with Palace previously when Sam Allardyce stood aside after staving off relegation last term, the Clarets coach has resisted previous overtures.
Dyche is the seventh longest-serving manager in English league football, who has two promotions during his four-year Turf Moor tenure.
He kept Burnley up for the first time in Premier League history last season using a largely British and Irish squad.
Jurgen Klinsmann a foreign option
Although best-known for as a deadly striker for London rivals Spurs, Klinsmann has been linked with jobs in England before.
Those include the position of national coach both before and after Sam Allardyce’s short spell.
Rumours suggested Klinsmann was a German consortium’s preferred manager for Sunderland before a takeover bid fell through this summer.
He has the pedigree as a player and boss, besides experience of English football on his side.
Klinsmann makes for an intriguing 20/1 shot because of the American investors backing Palace.
Dougie Freedman overpriced for dugout return
Beloved Selhurst striker Freedman is back at Palace as sporting director, having managed the Eagles before.
Some reports suggest the Scot could step in for a second spell in charge if De Boer is axed.
While his first stint with Palace showed real promise, Freedman failed to build on that when joining Bolton Wanderers.
He also managed Nottingham Forest, again like the Trotters in difficult circumstances.
Freedman looked massively overpriced at 33/1 in the next Eagles manager betting, and has been cut into 5/1.
