Roy Hodgson era gains lift-off after Bakary Sako ends drought

De Boer is very proud his daughter is set to be at university for longer than he was at Palace

De Boer expressed his disappointment on Instagram at Palace's decision to sack him.

Roy Hodgson insisted Crystal Palace can not "repair the kind of damage we've suffered overnight" despite his satisfaction with their 1-0 defeat of Huddersfield in the third round of the Carabao Cup. It's fine to do those things, and who wouldn't do that? I'm pleased with the win, pleased with the first-half performance after only a week's work.

"However, it would be very churlish of me not to praise the players and I am very happy with the contribution tonight". "I didn't say I'm a local boy".

"A disgrace" and "an absolute joke" are some of the accusations levelled at Parish and the American co-owners, Joshua Harris and David Blitzer, who flew over to watch Palace's 1-0 defeat against Burnley before sacking the manager.

One club who also hoped to sign Riedewald over the summer were Everton, with the Daily Mail reporting that manager Ronald Koeman had identified his fellow Dutchman as the ideal left-footed defender he needed, but his move to hijack Palace's deal came too late. "I think it was a panic appointment and I think it was a panic sacking".

"It was a similar sort of thing: Arsenal, those type of teams".

"It's the one we had most time for and possibly nearly agonising over it too much and it became nearly muddled thinking".

"The fans were very supportive and we were pleased to leave the field with applause ringing in our ears", he said. "The leagues are very different and maybe what Frank thought he could achieve in a short space of time wasn't going to happen".

Huddersfield manager David Wagner, however, has warned his players that league success over Palace will count for nothing.
