Roy Hodgson Reappointed as Crystal Palace Manager

Former England manager Roy Hodgson has been reappointed as Crystal Palace boss until the end of the season.

Patrick Vieira, who replaced Hodgson at Selhurst Park in July 2021, was sacked by Palace on Friday after a 12-match winless run in all competitions.

Hodgson, 75, managed Watford from January to May 2022, leaving after they were relegated to the Championship.

"It is a privilege to be asked to return to the club, which has always meant so much to me," said Hodgson.

"Our sole objective now is to start winning matches, and to get the points necessary to ensure our Premier League status."

Hodgson had said he did not expect to take another managerial job in the Premier League after his departure from Watford.
