On Monday, London-based football club Crystal Palace sacked Frank de Boer as manager. de Boer was appointed at the English club less than three months ago.

Crystal Palace is currently nineteenth in the Premier League table. de Boer had signed a three-year contract with Crystal Palace on June 26, but his team lost all four Premier League matches played so far. Crystal Palace is yet to score a goal in a Premier League match, this season. de Boer's only victory with the London club came against Ipswich Town in the EFL Cup. de Boer succeeded former England's manager Sam Allardyce at Crystal Palace, who helped the club avoid relegation and finish fourteenth. Allardyce joined Crystal Palace after he was sacked from England's manager ten weeks into the position.

In the official statement on the club's website, Crystal Palace said, "Crystal Palace Football Club have this morning parted company with Frank de Boer. We would like to thank Frank for his dedication and hard work during his time at the club. A new manager will be appointed in due course and we wish Frank the very best of luck for the future."

In November, de Boer was sacked as the head coach of Italian club Internazionale after the club lost seven of fourteen matches. His tenure at the Milan-based club lasted for just 85 days. Before joining Inter, the Dutchman helped Ajax Amsterdam to win four consecutive Eredivisie — Dutch League titles.

Former England manager Roy Hodgson was immediately favoured for the vacated spot. Crystal Palace had six permanent managers in the last six years. de Boer had the fewest matches in a management tenure of an English club — four Premier League matches, and five in total. de Boer's last match for Crystal Palace ended in a 1–0 defeat against Burnley.
