Crystal Palace Name De Boer As New Manager

share on:

Crystal Palace have appointed former Inter Milan manager, Frank De Boer as their new manager.

The Dutch manager replaces Sam Allardyce, who left the club at the end of the season.

De Boer has been looking for job ever since he left Inter in November, after an 85-day spell.

“I am thrilled to be appointed as manager of Crystal Palace Football Club,” de Boer said in a statement. “It is a great honour to take charge of such an historic club, a club that is known around the world for its hugely proud and passionate fan base.

“This role is a hugely exciting opportunity for me, and I cannot wait to get started in the Premier League with the players and staff here in south London.”

Speaking alongside chairman Steve Parish at a press conference, de Boer added: “The club can still grow further and further, because every year English clubs spend a lot of money, so it is possible to do something well.

“There is a lot of prospect to be a solid Premier League club. I have to see the players first, but I have my ideas, maybe one or two signings.

“We want to be a solid Premier League club, not a team which struggles for relegation, this is the target. If we can do more, then that is nice, but first is to be a very solid Premier League club.”
