Crystal Palace are considering a surprising move for England manager Gareth Southgate as the pressure mounts on current boss Roy Hodgson.
The Sun reports that Hodgson is on thin ice, with his job potentially on the line as Palace prepares to face Chelsea on Monday night.
The Eagles’ Premier League campaign has been challenging, with a 15th-place position and only 5 points above the relegation zone. They’ve managed just 6 wins this season, with only 2 victories in their last 12 matches.
With Hodgson’s future uncertain, Palace are exploring potential replacements, with Southgate emerging as a candidate. According to the report, the club are reportedly eyeing a move for him in the summer following the Euros.
Other options being considered include Steve Cooper and former Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui.
