FRANK DE BOER admitted his future was out of his control but is desperate for the opportunity to turn around Crystal Palace's fortunes after the Eagles slid to their fourth straight Premier League defeat at Burnley.

Joey Barton criticises former England boss Roy Hodgson - who is expected to replace Frank de Boer at Crystal Palace - for "having no charisma".

"I was sacked (by Chelsea) as a champion, (former Leicester manager Claudio) Ranieri was sacked as a champion", said the Portuguese, also once of Inter.

The club confirmed de Boer's departure in a brief statement on the club's website. Football teams lose games, it happens.

"A lot of people say he's a great fella, but I just don't think [he's the right fit]".

Wood struck after just three minutes, with the New Zealander's goal proving the highlight in a game devoid of quality or entertainment at Turf Moor.

Parish also wrote: "We are 4 games in, it's a bad start but we have to stick together".

"Get some placards and a petition up, I'll stand my record up against any chairman we've had in 118 years".

A 3-0 defeat on the opening day of the season against newly promoted Huddersfield was just the start of a awful run for Palace, who then lost 1-0 to Liverpool, 0-2 to Swansea and 1-0 to Burnley.

"I am not so concerned about that, I think we have a very good relationship".

It appears likely that Palace will have a new manager in charge by the time that they face Southampton at home on Saturday in their next fixture.

Frank de Boer sacked by Palace. We had a much weaker squad when we finished 11th.

But De Boer admitted: "We have to reward ourselves and we didn't do that today".

The 47-year-old Dutchman expressed disappointment in Crystal Palace's decision, via Instagram.
