Glasner replaces Hodgson as Crystal Palace manager


Oliver Glasner has been appointed as the new Crystal Palace manager.

This follows Roy Hodgson stepping down from the role before Monday night’s Premier League game against Everton.

Hodgson became ill during training last Thursday and then underwent tests in hospital.

Palace have confirmed the 76-year-old is now out of hospital and “doing well.”

In a club statement announcing his departure, Hodgson said: “I understand, given recent circumstances, it may be prudent at this time for the club to plan ahead, and therefore I have taken the decision to step aside so that the club can bring forward their plans for a new manager, as intended for this summer.”

Palace confirmed Glasner’s appointment shortly after on a deal until the end of the 2025–2026 season.
