Crystal Palace set to appoint Frank de Boer as new manager

London, United Kingdom – Crystal Palace are close to appointing Frank de Boer as manager. The Eagles are looking for their eighth boss in seven years in the wake of Sam Allardyce’s shock resignation. Allardyce kept the the south Norwood club in the Premier League.

Former Ajax, Barcelona and Rangers defender De Boer has been out of work since he lost his job at Inter Milan in November last year.

Between 2010 and 2016 De Boer managed Ajax, winning the Eredivisie four years in a row between 2011 and 2015.

The Eagles will want to have the new man in place ahead of the trip to Hong Kong in mid-July for the Premier League Asia Trophy. The tour will also feature Liverpool, West Brom and Leicester.
