Crystal Palace have appoint Allardyce as their new manager

Sam Allardyce as been appointed new manager Crystal Palace on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

The 62-year-old returns to football management after leaving his position in charge of England in September after he was caught by a newspaper sting apparently stating that he could offer advice on how to circumvent transfer regulations in the Premier League.


Former Bolton, Blackburn, West Ham and Sunderland boss Allardyce arrives at Selhurst Park as a replacement for Alan Pardew, who was dismissed on Thursday.

Palace are currently 17th in the Premier League, one point above the relegation zone ahead of Allardyce's first game in charge against Watford on Boxing Day.

The London club confirmed the news on their official website, with chairman Steve Parrish delighted with the appointment.

Parrish said.
"We are delighted to be able to make an appointment so quickly and fortunate that someone of Sam’s calibre and experience was available,"

Pardew was asked to step down by Parish after managing only four wins from 17 Premier League games this season.

The London club are one point above the relegation zone heading into Monday's game with West Brom, highlighting their stark decline in 2016, especially since their FA Cup final defeat to Manchester United.
