Plenty of Crystal Palace fans have been reacting to Harry Redknapp’s comments on Frank Lampard possibly replacing Roy Hodgson at Selhurst Park.
Lampard to Palace?
Hodgson’s deal with the Eagles expires at the end of the current campaign, with the 73-year-old ‘undecided’ over his Palace future. The Englishman has taken charge of 153 games as Palace boss, averaging 1.25 points per game.
By comparison, Lampard earned 1.75 points per match during his 84-game stint in charge at Stamford Bridge between July 2019 and January 2021.
Do you want to see Lampard at Palace?
Redknapp, who is the 42-year-old’s uncle, spoke to talkSPORT (19 March, 9.50am), cited by HITC, praising Hodgson before labelling Lampard as ‘the red-hot favourite’ to possibly take over in London.
“Roy’s done a great job at Palace. If he doesn’t stay, I think Frank could be the Palace manager.”
“I would think Frank would be the red-hot favourite.”
