Roy Hodgson to return to Crystal Palace following Patrick Vieira’s departure

Roy Hodgson have agreed terms with Crystal Palace to become their manager for the rest of the season.

Roy Hodgson will be making his return to Crystal Palace after the terms of his appointment were agreed by both the parties. The experienced coach will be signing a deal until the end of the season, replacing former coach Patrick Vieira, who departed the club earlier this year.

Hodgson is no stranger to Crystal Palace, having previously managed the club from 2017 to 2020. During his time at the club, he achieved impressive results, guiding the Eagles to an 11th place finish in the 2017-18 season and securing a comfortable mid-table position in the following two seasons.

Hodgson’s appointment comes at a crucial time for the club, as they currently find themselves in a precarious position in the Premier League table. With just ten games left to play, the Eagles are only two points above the relegation zone, and the club’s hierarchy will be hoping that Hodgson’s experience can help steer them clear of danger.
