Roy Hodgson wants Crystal Palace job if under-fire Frank de Boer gets axed

ROY HODGSON is ready to come to Crystal Palace’s rescue if they fire Frank de Boer.

Hodgson, out of full-time work since leaving England after Euro 2016, has told friends he has “one last job” in him.

His claim comes as Palace chairman Steve Parish agonises over whether to sack his Dutch coach after three straight Premier League defeats.

Palace have failed to score a league goal under De Boer this season.

Ex-West Brom boss Hodge was a trainee at Palace  and still has connections with the Eagles.

The 70-year-old is prepared to speak to Parish if the job comes up as he feels he has a point to prove after England’s  disastrous Euro 2016 exit to Iceland.

Palace also had a THIRD bid rejected for Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho, 27.

The bid of £22million, plus £3m in add-ons, fell way short of the Reds’ £30m price tag.

The France international was a huge hit on-loan at Palace last season and was the driving force behind their Premier League survival.

And boss Frank de Boer is desperate to bring Sakho back the club permanently to add steel at the back.
