Ghanaian Duo Ayew And Schlupp To Work With New Manager At Crystal Palace Next Season

Ghanaian duo Jordan Ayew and Jeffrey Schlup will be working with a new manager at Crystal Palace next season following the announcement of Roy Hodgson’s departure.

The 74-year-old confirmed he will be leaving the club early on Tuesday morning after a managerial career that spans 45 years.

Hodgson said: “After more than 45 years of coaching I have decided that the time is right for me to step away from the rigours of top-flight Premier League football, so our final two matches will be my last ones as manager of Crystal Palace.

It’s been a particularly rewarding period of my football life and career to have been able to spend these last four seasons with Palace. I feel now that at the end of another successful season, in which we have secured our Premier League status, the moment is right for me to step down from my responsibilities of being a full-time manager.

I have had so much support from my wife and family throughout my career and I have been contemplating this decision for some time, and now I believe the time is right to consider them and to see what the future holds for me.

I have really enjoyed my time at Palace, I have been privileged to work with an outstanding group of professional and dedicated players, most of whom have been with me throughout the four years. A manager is only as good as the players who perform on the pitch. I have been fortunate that those in my charge have certainly given me that and I thank them for it.
