Roy Hodgson comes out of retirement to take charge of Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace have announced that Roy Hodgson has come out of retirement at the age of 75 to replace Patrick Vieira as their manager until the end of the season.
The Eagles made the announcement on Tuesday morning, stating that Hodgson was brought back in an attempt to save the club from relegation.
Hodgson had been in charge for four years between 2017 and 2021 and managed to keep them safely in the top-flight every season.
The appointment of his successor, Vieira, had not been as successful this season as Palace sought a more modern coach.
With Hodgson’s return comes Ray Lewington as first-team coach, whilst Paddy McCarthy is promoted to his number two with Darren Powell taking over as under-21s manager.
Chairman Steve Parish welcomed Hodgson back, admitting that they were in a “very challenging” position, while he also expressed his desire to restore Crystal Palace’s fortunes and ensure their Premier League status this season.
