Former England coach Roy Hodgson has broken a record as he became the oldest man to be appointed as a club manager in the EPL after he was appointed the new manager of Crystal Palace.
The 70-year-old former England manager has replaced Frank de Boer after the Dutchman was sacked following just four league games in charge of the South London club.
According to a statement on the club’s website, “Former England manager Roy Hodgson has been appointed as the new manager of Crystal Palace FC, on a two year contract,”
Hodgson’s two-year contract is worth £2.5million a year with a bonus of £1million should he help the club avoid relegation this season.
The last oldest manager in the EPL was Sir Alex Ferguson.
