Former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has emerged as the leading contender to replace Roy Hodgson at Crystal Palace, according to The Telegraph.
It didn’t take long for the latest managerial update to make its way onto social media, where a number of Palace fans gave their thoughts on the possibility of Lampard moving to Selhurst Park.
Do you want to see Lampard at Palace?
The report claims that the Eagles are deliberating over whether or not to make a managerial change, with Lampard now among the club’s top choices to potentially replace the 73-year-old former England boss.
Lampard, who was sacked at Stamford Bridge back in January, is thought to have moved ahead of the likes of Sean Dyche and Eddie Howe in Palace’s off-field shortlist.
It remains unclear as to whether or not a move to Palace would appeal to the 42-year-old, as he reportedly has no interest in becoming England’s Under-21 boss.
Palace fans react
Their post received plenty of interaction, with these Palace supporters below seemingly keen on a move for Lampard and one describing a possible appointment could bring ‘fresh added life’ into the club.
“Get this done.”
“Make it happen! @CEO4TAG“
“YES please! Would love to see @CEO4TAG bring fresh added life+invaluable reading of the game into the club by way of Lampard BUT with Hodgson initially supporting ‘upstairs’. Dynamic duo potential.“
“I’d be ok with this”
“I think we’d be lucky to get him. People think we’re a desirable prospect for managers are dreaming”
“He may be able to get us a couple of decent loanees in from Chelsea”
