Jordan Ayew’s manager at Crystal Palace Roy Hodgson has signed a new two-year contract which will see him remain at the club until the end of the 2019/20 season.
The 71-year-old joined the Premier League side in September last year after Frank de Boer was sacked following four defeats in his first four matches.
Hodgson turned Palace’s form around and led them away from relegation trouble, eventually ending the season in 11th place.
The former England manager expressed his excitement after extending his deal with his boyhood club for two more years.
“I am delighted to have extended my contract with Crystal Palace. It is a club that has been close to my heart since I was a youngster growing up in the borough of Croydon”.
“Having stood on the terraces in the 1950s, it is a wonderful thing to be managing my boyhood club all these years later”.
“We can be proud of our achievements last season in turning things around despite a poor start, but this year we want to ensure we don’t endure the same struggles”. he added.
