‘Him over Howe all day’: Some Crystal Palace fans react to links with ‘incredible’ 45-year-old

A number of Crystal Palace fans have given their thoughts on the speculation linking Valerien Ismael with the Selhurst Park hotseat.

Roy Hodgson is out of contract in the summer, and he has said he would discuss his future when the time was right.

Given his uncertain future at Palace, the club hierarchy are thought to have drawn up a list of potential replacements if he does decide to leave.

According to The Telegraph, Ismael – manager of Championship side Barnsley and a former Eagles player – is one of the coaches on the Palace radar.

The Frenchman joined the Tykes in October last year and has turned the Yorkshire side into playoff contenders with a 62 percent winning record.

Prior to taking the Barnsley reins, Ismael managed Austria’s LASK Linz, and previously coached a number of German sides including Wolfsburg, Nurnberg and Hanover’s second string.
