Crystal Palace manager Odds: Roy Hodgson to stay for another year

 

Update: 26.06.23

There has been a large amount of uncertainty as to whom would be in the hot-seat at Selhurst Park next season, however current manager Roy Hodgson has confirmed that he intends to remain in charge for the next year.

 

Verbal agreement

Roy Hodgson and Crystal Palace have reached a verbal agreement which will see the current boss remain in charge until the end of the 2023/24 campaign. In March 2023 the 75-year-old succeeded Patrick Vieira after the latter was dismissed and the former Three Lions manager has made a huge impact since taking charge of the South London side with wins in five of the Eagles’ closing ten games in 2022/23. Palace finished in a creditable 11th position last term and while club bosses were said to be seriously considering longer term options for the managerial hot-seat, the success of Hodgson’s return to Selhurst Park convinced the club that he was the best option for the new campaign.

 

Inspiration

Hodgson has also been very popular with the players and he played a large part in inspiring the likes of Eberechi Eze to earn for himself a call-up to the Three Lions squad, helped no doubt by his six goal contributions in ten games.  A deal to keep Hodgson at Selhurst Park is yet to be completed but the formalities of such a contract will be sorted in the coming days and weeks, at the very least before the first-team squad start their pre-season training.

 

Impressive run

Roy Hodgson’s ten-game spell in charge of Crystal Palace was impressive with five wins, three draws and just two defeats during his time at the club. Prior to this the club had embarked upon a twelve-match winless run. He had previously been in charge of Palace between September 2017 and May 2021, guiding the side to respective 11th, 12th, 14th and 14th-placed finishes.

 

Not ready to retire

As well as Crystal Palace, Hodgson’s 47-year managerial career has included spells at Inter Milan, Blackburn Rovers, Udinese, Fulham, Liverpool, West Bromwich Albion and the Switzerland and England national teams. Following his departure from Crystal Palace in May 2021 it was expected that he would retire, however he subsequently took the reins at Watford in January 2022.

 


 

13.06.23

Roy Hodgson is favourite to still be in the hot-seat at Selhurst Park at the start of the 2023/24 Premier League campaign but the likes of Graham Potter and Brendan Rodgers are seen as serious contenders for the position.

 

Undecided

Veteran manager Roy Hodgson successfully kept Crystal Palace clear of the relegation zone during this time at Selhurst Park last season on a short-term contract, however the Eagles are still undecided on whom they will appoint as their permanent boss for the 2023/24 season and beyond.

 

Considering options

Hodgson’s contract with Crystal Palace will come to an end in the next few weeks and at the time of writing, the 75-year-old is still to hear from club chairman Steve Parish with regard to his future plans. Parish appears to be considering his options carefully and Hodgson has no idea whether he will still be at the south London club for the 2023/24 season.

 

Rush of money

As things stand, the leading UK and Irish betting sites make Hodgson firm odds-on favourite to be manager of Crystal Palace on the opening day of the new season at general odds of 8/11 (best price of 6/5), however there has been a recent rush of money aimed towards former Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion boss Graham Potter who is currently second in the betting at a price of 4/1 (some firms going as low as 2/1).

 

Perfect fit

Many feel that Potter would be a perfect fit for the Selhurst Park position and it is felt that the club can put forward a convincing offer, including an opportunity to work with what is certainly one of the best young squads in the top-flight.

 

Best of the rest

Brendan Rodgers is deemed to be ‘best of the rest’ and the former Leicester City boss can be backed at a best price of 6/1, while Paulo Fonseca and Paddy McCarthy complete the top five in the market at 17/2 and 11/1 respectively.
