Several British media write on Thursday that the Premier League club has decided to fire manager Roy Hodgson (76).

According to several media – including the BBC and The Athletic – former Eintracht Frankfurt coach Oliver Glasner is said to be the leading candidate to take over the managerial job.

On Thursday, Crystal Palace were to hold a press conference with Hodgson in connection with the upcoming match against Everton. This has now been canceled after the 76-year-old is said to have fallen ill, the club reports on X.

Hodgson has managed Palace since March 2023, when he took over from Patrick Vieira. His contract expires after this season.

Palace are 15th in the Premier League, just five points above the relegation zone. The last 19 games have yielded only three victories.

On Monday, Palace lost 1-3 at home to Chelsea. The week before, there was a humiliating 1-4 loss away to Brighton.

During the game against Brighton, Palace supporters displayed banners calling for Hodgson and chairman Steve Parish to leave the club.
