Crystal Palace have interviewed Steve Cooper and Brendan Rodgers as Steve Parish attempts to replace Roy Hodgson.
That is according to the Evening Standard.
However, there is a third name mentioned in the report.
So, what is the latest at Crystal Palace in terms of manager news? Let’s take a look…
What’s the story?
Well, it is said that we’ve spoken to Rodgers and Cooper, although neither will be replacing Hodgson.
The latter is set to stay at Nottingham Forest, while the Northern Irishman has already returned to Celtic.
Interestingly, the Evening Standard add that Parish could also hire Adi Hütter – although the Crystal Palace Chairman would prefer to appoint a British manager with Premier League experience.
The Austrian has never managed in England before, and has been unemployed since leaving Borussia Monchengladbach in 2022.
It is also said that Hodgson has not been entirely ruled out, but the 75-year-old would need some convincing if he is to extend his contract in SE25.
Crystal Palace manager news doesn’t add up
The Evening Standard’s update names Hütter, despite the fact Parish already ruled out the 53-year-old taking over at Selhurst Park.
Back in April, the 57-year-old wrote on Twitter: “It’s the absolute ‘certainty’ that this stuff is written with that’s kind of mind boggling – I’m sure he’s a good bloke and all that but I’ve never met him let alone about to employ him. I do think these things need calling out every now and then.”
In our view, the most likely candidate at the moment is Graham Potter.
The 48-year-old fits the bill in terms of having Premier League experience, and is surprisingly still available as Tottenham turn to Ange Postecoglou, West Ham look set to keep David Moyes and Bournemouth hire Andoni Iraola.
Therefore – if we were to make a suggestion – we feel Potter could replace Hodgson, unless the experienced veteran chooses to extend his deal.
