Crystal Palace now thinking about hiring 66-year-old who worked for them in 1998, not Hodgson

Crystal Palace are now considering Ray Levington to assist Paddy McCarthy after opting to sack Patrick Vieira.

What is the ins and outs?

Hmm – according to South London Press – The Eagles are keen to bring an experienced manager to Selhurst Park as they aim to stay in the Premier League.

Therefore, Crystal Palace are considering bringing Lewington back to SE25.

Before Vieira was hired in July 2021, the 66-year-old was Roy Hodgson’s number two and actually took over as caretaker manager of Crystal Palace back in 1998.

Steve Parish is said to be keen to surround McCarthy with an experienced coach – Levington is an option as the player and club ranks think highly of him.

After a disastrous start to 2023, Crystal Palace currently find themselves just three points above the relegation zone.

The Eagles have not won a game in any competition so far in 2023 and recently became the first team on record to go without a shot on target in three Premier League games – according to Opta.

Levington return could herald panic for Crystal Palace

When news broke of Vieira’s sacking, it was expected that Crystal Palace had already lined up a replacement.

However, claims of Hodgson and Levington’s return suggest Steve Parish has hit the panic button and has not handed over his P45 to the Frenchman with an appropriate plan of action in mind.

Be sure to keep an eye out for this as anything can happen at Selhurst Park.
