Roy Hodgson is being disrespected on his way out of Crystal Palace, says former Premier League striker Brian Deane.
The 73-year-old managed his last game for Palace over the weekend and the south London club are now searching for a new manager.
Is Hodgson underrated?
For Deane, it has left a bit of a sour taste in his mouth, not happy with how some have spoken about Hodgson, especially compared to Lampard and Parker, who are both still quite inexperienced in this department of the game.
Speaking exclusively to TT about Palace’s manager situation, the ex-Sheffield United and Leeds United forward said:
“I’ve heard a couple of people on the radio say Scott Parker will be a good fit there or Frank Lampard. Listen, Roy Hodgson, he knows more on one hand than both of those guys put together. I think it’s [some of things that have been said] disrespectful.
“Yeah, people can turnaround and say they don’t play the most exciting football, but I think the balance is good because if you’re going to throw everything at games, then you’re going to lose more than half of them in the Premier League.
“I think what he’s done is he’s built a very good foundation.”
Indeed, over the last few seasons, Palace have looked like a solid team and one that rarely came into any sort of real relegation danger.
Hodgson definitely deserves a whole lot of credit for that after picking up a Palace side that were going absolutely nowhere under Frank de Boer.
