Frank de Boer sacked

After just 77 days in charge, Frank de Boer has lost his job as boss of Crystal Palace, making him the first Premier League managerial casualty of the new season.

During his short tenure the Dutchman presided over four straight losses in the Premier League, with his solitary win coming against Ipswich Town in the EFL Cup.

The Eagles are now on the hunt for their fourth manager in the space of 12 months and with Sam Allardyce already having ruled out a return to Selhurst Park, Roy Hodgson is now the firm favourite for the role.
