Frank De Boer Sacked By Crystal Palace

Frank de Boer has been sacked as Crystal Palace manager after five games and 77 days in charge.

The Eagles are 19th in the Premier League after losing 1-0 at Burnley on Sunday – and failed to score in their four league matches under De Boer.

His is the shortest Premier League managerial tenure in terms of games, and the 47-year-old’s past two jobs have lasted a combined 162 days.

Announcing the Dutchman’s departure on the club website, Palace said: “We would like to thank Frank for his dedication and hard work.”

Former Ajax boss De Boer only took over this summer, succeeding Sam Allardyce, who left after helping Palace avoid relegation last season.

He was sacked by Inter Milan in November 2016 after 85 days.

Former England manager Roy Hodgson is reported to be the likeliest replacement.
