'Nervous, frantic' Crystal Palace leave Hodgson calling for confidence

Roy Hodgson applauds the home fans after Crystal Palace's 1-0 defeat by Southampton

Roy Hodgson's appointment failed to inspire Crystal Palace to their first point or even Premier League goal of the season on Saturday. Regarding the poor start of the season, Hodgson said, "I don't honestly believe that there is necessarily a lot that needs to be done".

De Boer departed on Monday, only 77 days into a three-year contract, after Palace became the first team in England's top division to lose their opening four league fixtures without scoring since Preston 93 years ago.

In 2014's FIFA World Cup, England were eliminated in the group stage, and a year ago, following 2-1 defeat against Iceland in Euro 2016, Roy Hodgson announced resignation from the post.

"We were very nervous in the first half, people didn't show any confidence on the ball and we wanted to persuade them they didn't need to have that lack of confidence".

Palace are thus without a goal in five games this season, the longest run from the start of a Premier League campaign.

But that is his method, and the Palace players are going to have to get used to it, because he will be working them incredibly hard.

Hodgson said he has got over the disappointment of the way his reign as England manager ended.

"The anxiety, especially in the first half, was there for all to see, in the second there were better signs, we were prepared to put our foot on the ball and pass it".

I would rather watch Palace games from the past and concentrate on that.

"I didn't want to end it (my career) on a bad result but I think the 56 (England) games and the seven defeats is not so bad", he explained.

Orlando Trustfull, brought in by De Boer also as an assistant manager, and Ryland Morgans, who was head of performance, have also left the Premier League strugglers.

It represented something of a homecoming for the 70-year-old at Selhurst Park, given he grew up near to the ground and was on the south London club's books as a young player.
