Former England coach Roy Hodgson was appointed Crystal Palace manager on Tuesday, the Premier League club’s chairman Steve Parish said.

Parish posted a message on Twitter saying: “Warm welcome ‘back’ to #cpfc to Roy Hodgson.”

Hodgson told the club's official website: "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.

"The ambitions here are realistic and there is an enormous potential for growth and I hope we can achieve our goals."

The Eagles are bottom of the league without a point after four straight defeats.
