Crystal Palace: Roy Hodgson to retire from managing after the season ends

After 45 years of managing top-tier clubs, he says, that the time has come to move on with life.

Roy Hodgson joined Crystal Palace in September 2017. The club’s Premier League game against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday will mark the end of his coaching era.

“After over 45 years of instructing I have concluded that all is good and well for me to step away,” the 73-year-old said

The Club has declared Roy Hodgson will leave the club toward the finish of the period and the veteran manager says he won’t oversee the first-class football anymore.

The current terms of the 73-year-old’s arrangement will lapse in the late spring and he will leave Selhurst Park after the last match of the mission against Liverpool on Sunday.

“After over 45 years of training I have concluded that everything looks good for me to back away from the afflictions of first-class Premier League football, so our last two matches will be my last ones as an administrator of Crystal Palace,” Hodgson said.

“It’s been an especially compensating time of my football life and vocation to have had the option to spend these last four seasons with Palace. I feel now that towards the finish of another fruitful season, in which we have established our Premier League status, the time is ideal for me to venture down from my obligations of being a full-time manager.
