Crystal Palace boss De Boer facing sack after three games

Frank de Boer fears he could be sacked after just three Premier League games as Crystal Palace boss, a report claims.

Palace have lost three games out of three in the league to start their 2017/18 campaign, scoring no goals and conceding six in the process.

According to The Times, the former Ajax boss met Palace chairman Steve Parish on Monday, when he defended his approach.

However, the Dutchman is set for further talks this weekend and fears he could lose his job due to the growing concern his philosophy doesn’t fit with the South London club.

The report states that Sam Allardyce would not be interested in returning as manager, so the Eagles may turn to Roy Hodgson as they look to make a quick appointment without paying a club compensation money.

De Boer lasted just 85 days in his last job as Inter Milan boss before being axed by the San Siro hierarchy.
