Premier League manager taken ill as club cancels scheduled press conference

Posted by

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson encountered a health issue during today’s training session, leading to the cancellation of his scheduled pre-match press conference.

Initially sparking speculation about his potential dismissal, the cancellation was later attributed to Hodgson’s sudden illness, as confirmed by a brief statement posted on the club’s website.

A statement issued read:

“Unfortunately, today’s press conference will no longer take place as scheduled as Roy Hodgson was taken ill during this morning’s training session.”

While the Sun recently reported that Hodgson’s future is on thin ice, suggesting that his tenure could hinge on Palace’s performance against Chelsea, the club has not taken any immediate action following their loss to the Blues.

However, the situation suggests that it is only a matter of time before he is replaced.

Several candidates have been linked to the managerial role at Palace, including Gareth Southgate, Julen Lopetegui, and Steve Cooper, as potential replacements.

With Palace currently just four points above the relegation zone, a turnaround in form is imperative if they are to avoid the threat of relegation.
