Crystal Palace appoint Frank de Boer as new head coach

Crystal Palace appoint Frank de Boer as new head coach Crystal Palace appoint Frank de Boer as new head coach

De Boer, 47, was one of several candidates to be shortlisted, with the likes of Marco Silva, Christophe Galtier, Mauricio Pellegrino and Burnley boss Sean Dyche all initially linked with the vacant position.

The then Ajax Manager repeatedly reported to be a possibility to replace John Carver and then Steve McClaren.

He was sacked after just 85 days in charge at the San Siro following a poor run of results which saw his side slip to 12th in the Serie A table.

That is according to former Chelsea, Birmingham City and Wigan Athletic defender Mario Melchiot, who believes his fellow Dutchman will be a success at Crystal Palace, having been appointed on a three-year deal by the Eagles yesterday (Monday).

Selhurst Park may seem a slight comedown for a man who was given permission to talk to Tottenham Hotspur in 2014 and turned down Liverpool two years earlier.

De Boer has previously managed Ajax and Inter Milan, and his managerial honours include four consecutive Eredivisie titles.

"De Boer was unveiled as the new manager at the club's training ground today in front of the world's media, on what is an historic day for the club as it also revealed its new main sponsor, ManBetX, in a record deal for the club", the club said in a statement.

"I want to concentrate on making Crystal Palace a very solid Premier League club".

A spokesman for ManBetX added: "It's a hugely exciting time to partner with a high profile Premier League team like Crystal Palace FC".
