Oliver Glasner takes over as manager of Crystal Palace following Roy Hodgson’s resignation.


Hours before Crystal Palace’s Monday Night Football matchup against Everton, Roy Hodgson resigned as manager; Oliver Glasner began his coaching career with Austrian teams SV Ried and LASK before moving on to coach Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga.

Oliver Glasner has been named Crystal Palace’s next manager.

Shortly before Palace’s Monday Night Football encounter against Everton, Roy Hodgson announced his resignation as manager.

Hodgson, 76, became ill on Thursday while at training and was checked out at the hospital. The team announced that he is been out from the hospital and is “doing well”.

In a statement released by the club, Hodgson stated: “I understand, given recent circumstances, it may be prudent at this time for the club to plan ahead, and therefore I have taken the decision to step aside so that the club can bring forward their plans for a new manager, as intended for this summer.”

Glasner’s hiring was shortly after announced by Palace, with a contract that ran through the end of the 2025–2026 season.

“We think he is the best manager to lead the team at this critical juncture, given his exceptional track record,” chairman Steve Parish stated.
