According to London News Online, Frank Lampard is now back in the running to replace Roy Hodgson at Crystal Palace.
What’s the story?
Well, after Lucien Favre’s baffling U-turn, the south Londoners are now back to square one in their hunt for a new manager.
It seems Steve Parish is now revisiting those he considered for the vacancy early on in the process.
London News Online claim that Lampard was already interviewed shortly after Hodgson announced his exit, as was Eddie Howe.
While the story doesn’t saw Howe is being reconsidered, it does claim that Lampard is now back in the frame.
The 41-year-old has been away from management since being sacked by Chelsea in January.
Will it be Frank Lampard?
In our view, Lampard will now get the job.
Some at Selhurst Park, namely Josh Harris and David Blitzer, are believed to admire Swansea boss Steve Cooper.
However, Parish isn’t so keen on the Welshman, according to 90min.
Elsewhere, London News Online believe Burnley’s Sean Dyche is an option, but he would cost a significant compensation package.
With Lampard unemployed, and therefore available to hire without paying a fee, we think the ex-Derby boss will be Crystal Palace’s new manager.
