Roy Hodgson is being rewarded for his success with Crystal Palace.

The team announced Friday that they have signed the 71-year old manager to a one-year contract extension that will keep him signed through the 2109/2020 season.

“I am delighted to have extended my contract with Crystal Palace,” said Hodgson.

“It is a club that has been close to my heart since I was a youngster growing up in the borough of Croydon, and having stood on the terraces in the 1950s, it is a wonderful thing to be managing my boyhood club all these years later.”

“I am thrilled that I have the support of the owners, who believe that I am the right man to help this club move forward and I will do everything I can to make that happen.”

Hodgson, who has been The Eagles’ manager since September 2017, has led the club to a combined 12-11-14 record through 37 combined games.
