After reaching “verbal agreement,” former Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson’s next position has been announced

Roy Hodgson, a former manager of Liverpool, plans to remain in his position as Crystal Palace manager.

It has been verbally agreed that Hodgson will continue to serve as manager, claims Sky Sports. According to the report, Palace management considered long-term alternatives, but Hodgson’s standing with the players and the way he improved the team’s performance during his second stint played a crucial role.

When Patrick Vieira was fired in March, the Englishman temporarily took over and guided Palace to safety with five victories in eight games. The former Liverpool manager arrived at Selhurst Park to an unbeaten Premier League team that had only scored once in five games.

Following the conclusion of Palace’s season, Hodgson addressed his future by saying: “I haven’t spoken to Steve Parish.

“As far as I’m concerned, I signed a contract to work here; I’ve fulfilled that, and I’ll return to my previous position to assess my future prospects.”

Hodgson responded, “I don’t know; I’ll wait until that day arrives, if it ever arrives. I don’t need to worry about that right now.

“What’s on my agenda is to see my contract through, thank everyone for the previous two and a half months, and hopefully help the team achieve a result. All of my options should be open, I hope.

After a successful tenure at Fulham, Hodgson was named Liverpool manager in July 2010, succeeding Rafa Benitez. But only 13 of the 31 games he was in charge of saw him fired in January 2011.

On December 9, the Reds host Palace at Selhurst Park, and on Saturday, April 13, they host Palace again at Anfield.
