  • Roy Hodgson is Crystal Palace's new manager

Palace acted quickly to replace De Boer, who was sacked after just 77 days in charge of the club.

"Crystal Palace Football Club have this morning parted company with Frank de Boer", the south London club said on its official website on Monday, reports Xinhua news agency.

Hodgson's last Premier League job was with West Bromwich Albion before taking over as England manager in 2012.

"It is very rewarding to find myself here now, in different times, as the Palace manager at a club that I have always loved and admired with a huge potential", he added. "The ambitions here are realistic and there is an enormous potential for growth and I hope we can achieve our goals".

"It's a good day for me, I'm very happy and looking forward to hopefully getting down to work and trying to help us get some points in the league and climb up the table", he said.

Winger Zaha has been out since the first game of the season - a 3-0 home defeat to Huddersfield on August 12 - and was expected to be out for a month.

His spell in charge was the shortest Premier League managerial tenure in terms of games, with his past two jobs lasting a combined 162 days.
