Crystal Palace lines up Paulo Fonseca, Frank Lampard and Sean Dyche as Roy Hodgson replacement

With the future of Roy Hodgson uncertain, English Premier League side Crystal Palace has lined up the trio of Paulo Fonseca, Frank Lampard and Sean Dyche as their next possible managers.

Palace are yet to sit down with 73-year-old Hodgson to discuss what happens after his current deal runs out in the summer with reports rife that Hodgson might leave the club in the summer to take a rest.

The Daily Mail reports that while Lampard and Dyche had been placed in the list earlier, Palace sees AS Roma’s Fonseca as a manager who would be a good addition to the side; the other manager being Swansea's Steve Cooper.

The Portuguese has managed Braga and Shakhtar before moving to Italy in 2019and with Roma competing for a top-four finish this season, Palace feels the work he has done in the three clubs is enough to hand him a deal in England.

Palace are however wary of the fact that their previous experience with an overseas manager Frank de Boer lasted only four matches, they haven't ruled out going abroad again for the right candidate, following the example at Leeds and Wolves who appointed Marcelo Bielsa and Nuno Espirito Santo.
