Crystal Palace Appoints Oliver Glasner as New Manager

Crystal Palace has officially announced the appointment of Austrian manager Oliver Glasner as their new head coach, taking over from Roy Hodgson, who stepped down earlier on Monday. Hodgson's departure came as a surprise, with the veteran manager stating that he made the decision to accelerate the club's search for a new manager. Glasner, 49, arrives at Selhurst Park after being out of work since last summer when he left his position at Eintracht Frankfurt. The timing of his appointment coincides with Palace's upcoming Premier League clash against Everton on Monday night.

Glasner's managerial pedigree includes his recent tenure at Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga. Hodgson expressed his intentions to step down, allowing the club to expedite their managerial transition plans. In a statement released by Palace chairman Steve Parish, he expressed his delight in welcoming Glasner to the club, highlighting the new manager's impressive track record. Parish emphasized Glasner's ambition and attacking style of play, which he believes will be beneficial in maximizing the potential of Palace's young squad for the remainder of the season and beyond.

Upon his appointment, Glasner expressed his happiness in joining the club and conveyed his eagerness to work with the talented squad and experience the atmosphere at Selhurst Park. He acknowledged the club's goals and expressed his excitement in collaborating with Palace's leadership to achieve them.

Glasner inherits a Palace side currently sitting 16th in the Premier League table after enduring 10 defeats in their last 16 matches. However, the new manager is determined to turn their fortunes around and has signed a two-year deal that will see him at the helm until 2026. His first match in charge will be against Burnley on Saturday, with assistant coaches Ray Lewington and Paddy McCarthy overseeing the crucial Everton fixture.

Rumors surrounding Glasner's potential appointment intensified after he was spotted at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium during Spurs' defeat to Wolves. His successful tenure at Frankfurt, which included winning the UEFA Europa League in 2022, underscores his managerial credentials. Prior to his stint at Frankfurt, Glasner had managerial spells at various clubs, including SV Ried, LASK, and VfL Wolfsburg, where he achieved notable successes, including UEFA Champions League qualification.

Glasner's appointment marks a new chapter for Crystal Palace as they aim to secure their Premier League status and progress under his leadership.
