Roy Hodgson has been reappointed as Crystal Palace manager until the end of the season.

75-year-old Hodgson returns to manage his boyhood club for a second stint after Palace sacked Patrick Vieira last week following a run of 12 games without victory.

The former England manager takes over with Palace fighting to stay up the EPL, sitting just three points above the relegation zone with 10 games to go.

Palace’s next game is at home to another struggling side Leicester when the Premier League resumes after the international break on April 1.
