Palace appoint de Boer


Crystal Palace have Dutchman Frank de Boer as their new boss after he put pen to paper on a three-year contract.

The former Ajax and Inter Milan manager replaces ex-England boss Sam Allardyce at Selhurst Park.

And the forty-seven year old spoke of his aims as he takes on his first job in the Premier League following several previous links.

“The aim is to be a solid Premier League team, not to struggle with relegation.” he said.

“That is our main target – if we do more that’s nice.

“I had a good feeling about the club and the prospect of managing a team in the Premier League was exciting,” added De Boer.

“This club can grow further and further. They spend a lot of money and there is the possibility to do something well with that money.

“I’ve not met the players yet. We will look at one or two signings, but I think it is necessary to see all the players here first.” he finished.
