Crystal Palace wants Gareth Southgate for managerial role amidst Premier League struggles

Crystal Palace is reportedly considering a bold move for England manager Gareth Southgate amid mounting pressure on current boss Roy Hodgson.

With Hodgson’s position hanging by a thread as Palace gears up to clash with Chelsea on Monday night, speculation is rife about potential replacements.

The Eagles find themselves languishing in 15th place in the Premier League, with a mere five-point cushion above the dreaded relegation zone. Their lackluster campaign has seen them muster just six wins, with a paltry two victories in their last 12 outings.

As Hodgson’s future hangs in the balance, Palace is actively exploring alternatives, with Southgate emerging as a leading contender. The club is reportedly eyeing a move for the England gaffer in the summer following the Euros, signaling a seismic shift in their managerial landscape.

Alongside Southgate, other names in the frame include Steve Cooper and former Wolves supremo Julen Lopetegui, as Palace seeks to inject fresh impetus into their faltering campaign.

Hodgson, who took the reins from Patrick Vieira last season and steered Palace to safety with an 11th-place finish, has struggled to replicate that success this term. The veteran manager recently conceded that the current string of results represents one of the toughest challenges in his illustrious managerial career spanning nearly four decades.

With Palace’s hierarchy poised to make a decisive move, the prospect of Southgate taking the helm adds an intriguing dimension to the Premier League managerial merry-go-round. As the speculation intensifies, all eyes will be on Selhurst Park to see how the Eagles navigate this pivotal juncture in their season.
