Next Crystal Palace manager - Who will replace Frank de Boer? All the information you need on next Crystal Palace manager odds

Frank de Boer is announced as the new Crystal Palace manager during a press conference at Beckenham training ground

Former Ajax boss Frank de Boer has finally made his long-awaited move to the Premier League this summer to take over from Sam Allardyce at Selhurst Park, but how will the Dutch boss fare in charge of Crystal Palace?


Club Status


As many clubs in the top flight of English football benefit from the Premier League’s television and overseas deals, the gulf in class between the outer rung of the top four and the safety zone just above the relegation positions narrows considerably.

A new breed of club has emerged as a result and Crystal Palace are one of the main beneficiaries, however, they also have a number of other advantages: Crystal Palace have a prime spot in the Capital city of England and they possess an ever-growing roster filled with eye-catching talents such as Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha.

While Palace are considered one of England’s up-and-coming teams, they are yet to win a major title and last season proved to be something of a struggle for the London club as they flirted with the relegation zone throughout the campaign before finally pulling away in the final weeks.

A Premier League staple since 2012, Palace have twice battled their way to the FA Cup final only to end the competition as runners-up, losing to Manchester United on both occasions.

The club, though, are perhaps more noted for their playing personnel over the years than their cup runs as a number of notable footballers have blessed their locker rooms including Kenny Sansom, Jim Cannon, Mark Bright, Eddie McGoldrick, Chris Coleman, Andrew Johnson, Nathaniel Clyne, Andy Gray, John Salako and, of course, Ian Wright.

Current Manager


Frank de Boer

Frank de Boer has long been considered a potential Premier League manager since his days in charge of Ajax. Over the years, the Dutch boss has been linked with the likes of Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur but he has now been hired at Crystal Palace following the summer resignation of Sam Allardyce.

De Boer enjoyed a terrific career as a player, racking up over 500 appearances in spells with Ajax, Rangers and Barcelona amongst others, winning six league titles and a Champions League trophy and earning over 100 caps for the Netherlands over a 14 year period.

The 47 year old moved into coaching in 2007 following his retirement as a player and after spells in the backroom staff with Ajax and the Netherlands, he then spent six years in charge of the first team at the Amsterdam ArenA, winning four Eredivisie titles.

After being touted for several jobs across Europe during those six years with Ajax, de Boer was finally hired as coach of Inter Milan last summer but was sacked after just 85 days in charge with the club floundering in Serie A so now he's hoping to rebuild his career at Crystal Palace in his new job.

Although supporters at Selhurst Park will no doubt have been grateful to former boss Sam Allardyce for keeping the club in the Premier League, they'll now be hoping that de Boer can get the best out of a talented and exciting squad by implementing a more attractive style of play over the course of this season.

Key Influences - Who helps decide on the manager's future?


Owner Steve Parish led a consortium, CPFC 2010, to acquire Crystal Palace out from administration over six years ago. In that time the club have been promoted and have become a Premier League mainstay. Parish, primarily, will decide on the future of the manager but American investors like David Blitzer and Josh Harris would also be able to make their voices heard.

Crystal Palace have never won any major honours though they have finished third in the top flight of English football (1991) and have been FA Cup finalists on two occasions (1990 and 2016).

Potential Future Crystal Palace Managers and Next Crystal Palace Manager Betting Advice

With de Boer having only just been hired at Selhurst Park, it's difficult to see too far into the future to see who his replacement may be.
