Following Patrick Vieira's firing last week, English club Crystal Palace on Tuesday named Roy Hodgson as its new coach for the end of the current season.

According to the English league club, Paddy McCarthy will assist Hodgson, 75, who previously served as the team's head coach from 2017 to 2021. The team only managed to win one of its 13 games played before Vieira left Crystal Palace.

The team is currently in 12th place in the league, three points above the safety line.

Hodgson stated on the English club's website, "It is a privilege to be asked to return to the club, which has always meant a lot to me, and to be entrusted with the critical duty of turning the fortunes of the squad around.

"Our sole objective right now is to start winning games and accumulating the necessary points to maintain our Premier League standing. Crystal Palace are famed for their tenacity, and I am confident that all of our supporters will battle alongside us " he added.

About Roy Hodgson

Hodgson was born 9 August 1947 in Surrey's Croydon. His mother worked as a baker in the community, while his father Bill, a supporter of Newcastle United, drove buses south of the River Thames.

He oversaw 22 different clubs in eight different countries, beginning in 1976 with Halmstads BK in Sweden. He later guided the Swiss national side to qualification for the 1994 World Cup and the 1996 Euro.

Since the 1960s, Switzerland had not made it into a major competition. He oversaw the Finland national team from 2006 to 2007, leading them to their highest-ever FIFA ranking of 33rd and putting them in position to perhaps make history by potentially reaching a major tournament.

From May 2012 to June 2016, he served as the England national team's manager. Inter Milan, Blackburn Rovers, Malmö FF, Grasshoppers, FC Copenhagen, Udinese, Fulham, Liverpool, West Bromwich Albion, Crystal Palace, and Watford are some of the other teams that Hodgson has managed.

At the European Championships, Hodgson frequently participated in the UEFA technical study group. He also participated in the FIFA technical study group at the 2006 World Cup. In several of the nations where he has coached, Hodgson has worked as a television analyst and is fluent in five different languages.
