Frank De Boer was sacked yesterday morning by Crystal palace after releasing a statement that they have parted ways with the manager and wish him the best of luck in his career.
The Eagles said in a statement: “Crystal Palace Football Club have this morning parted company with Frank de Boer.
“We would like to thank Frank for his dedication and hard work during his time at the Club.
“A new manager will be appointed in due course and we wish Frank the very best of luck for the future. There will be no further comment at this time.”
Frank De Boer was sacked just 77days after being appointed as Crystal Palace Manager, because of the poor start to the season. After 4 games they sit at the bottom of the table, with no points and conceded 8 goals in the process, it was the worst possible start for the new manager.
The club decided to take action and rescue the decline, clubs have not shied away from dispatching there manager when the team is on the decline, even if the manager is a folk hero for the club, Claudio Ranieri was sacked the next season after winning them the Premier league with Leicester, Jose was fired from Chelsea also after winning the Premier league the previous season.
Here are some of the reactions that followed the sacking of De Boer
Feel sorry for Frank De Boer. I mean what is a guy to do with 4 league games. Premier League is nuts.

Frank De Boer will pick up an estimated 6 million pounds for his 77 day stint at Palace so excuse me if i don't feel that sorry for him…

Feel bad for Frank De Boer. Promised funds, and a long term project. Ended up being given bugger all budget and sacked after 77 days. Rough.
