Roy Hodgson has returned as Crystal Palace manager following the dismissal of Patrick Vieira.

Crystal Palace has announced that Roy Hodgson will return as manager of the club after Patrick Vieira was sacked.

Paddy McCarthy takes the role as his assistant manager, and Ray Lewington returns as first-team coach. Dean Kiely will remain in his position as goalkeeping coach.

Chairman Steve Parish said: “I would like to welcome Roy and Ray back to the club. We are obviously in a very challenging period but we believe that Roy’s and Ray’s experience, knowledge of the club and players, alongside Paddy can help fulfil the immediate requirement of keeping us in the league.”

Hodgson added: “It is a privilege to be asked to return to the club, which has always meant so much to me, and to be given the important task of turning the team’s fortunes around.

“Our sole objective now is to start winning matches, and to get the points necessary to ensure our Premier League status.

“Crystal Palace is known for its fighting spirit, and I have no doubt that all our supporters will fight with us, beginning with the visit of Leicester City a week Saturday.”
