Crystal Palace: Fans react to Ismael links

Crystal Palace: Fans react to Ismael links - Crystal Palace

Plenty of Crystal Palace fans have been reacting to the club’s reported interest in Barnsley boss Valerien Ismael on social media.

According to The Telegraph, cited by the Daily Mail, Ismael has been added to Palace’s managerial shortlist to potentially replace Roy Hodgson.

Swansea City’s Steve Cooper, Burnley’s Sean Dyche and former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard are also thought to be on the club’s list, along with Roma manager Paulo Fonseca.

Of course, these alternatives come after days of intense links with Eddie Howe, who is also linked with Celtic.

How well do you know Crystal Palace’s record transfer business? First up, how much did Palace fork out for Christian Benteke in 2016? *fees from Transfermarkt*

Ismael appears to be the latest man on the club’s radar, though, with the former Palace centre-back making his mark in the Championship with Barnsley this season.

The 45-year-old, who made 13 appearances for the Eagles as a player, has averaged 1.97 points per game at Oakwell, leading the club into the playoff places with five games remaining.

Should Palace get rid of Hodgson this summer?
