“My deepest sympathies, Crystal Palace” – Liverpool fans react to Roy Hodgson’s imminent return to management

Liverpool’s worst manager in recent times, Roy Hodgson, is set to return to management at Crystal Palace—and Reds supporters have been left stunned by the news.

Hodgson is one of the least popular individuals in Reds history, with his disastrous six-month reign in 2010/11 threatening to relegate the team at one point.

Palace made the harsh decision to sack Frank de Boer on Monday, and while the decision has come as a shock to many, his replacement is even more unfathomable.

Hodgson looks almost certain to take charge at Selhurst Park—a job he doesn’t merit at all after his embarrassing spell as England manager.

Then again, Sam Allardyce took over at Palace after a one-match stint with the national team.

Unsurprisingly, Liverpool fans and non-Reds alike have been putting the boot in somewhat; here’s the best of the reaction.
