Roy Hodgson reappointed Crystal Palace manager ahead of Leeds United clash

Roy Hodgson has been reappointed as Crystal Palace manager, two years after he was sacked by the club, following the departure of Patrick Vieira last week.

The 76-year-old, who has been in management since 1976, will head the dugout at Selhurst Park until the end of the season and was last in charge at Watford before their relegation last season.

Hodgson's previous tenures include a stint as England manager from 2013-2016, other Premier League clubs such as Fulham, Liverpool and Blackburn Rovers as well as numerous European ventures like Inter Milan, Malmo FF and FC Copenhagen.

His first game back in management will be against Leicester City when the Premier League reconvenes on April 1, but his second game will be a trip to Elland Road to face relegation rivals Leeds United on April 9.

Hodgson will try and keep the Eagles in the top-flight of English football, having achieved 11th, 12th and two 14th-placed finishes over his four previous seasons at the club.
