Fresh in the minds of not only Palace fans but the rest of the footballing world, Frank De Boer's torrid time in charge of Crystal Palace came to an end after just five games and 77 days, making it the shortest managerial stint in terms of matches played.
The former Ajax man had previously won four Eredivisie titles in a row between 2011-and 2015 as well as a short and unsuccessful tenure at Inter Milan prior to joining the Eagles in 2017.
His appointment garnered a lot of attention, with many hoping he would bring free-flowing attacking football to Selhurst Park. However, after no wins and no goals in all of his Premier League games in charge, Palace chairman Steve Parish gave him the axe.
De Boer’s only success came against Ipswich Town in the EFL cup, whereas Palace went on to have a relatively successful campaign, finishing 11th in Hodgson’s first season in charge.
