Roy Hodgson To Break Premier League Record Against Leicester



Roy Hodgson

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson is taking inspiration from veteran broadcaster David Attenborough as he prepares to break a Premier League record.

Roy Hodgson will beat the record of the late Sir Bobby Robson as the oldest manager to ever manage a Premier League game at the age of 71 years and 198 days when he leads his Crystal Palace side out against Leicester City.

The Foxes host Crystal Palace in a Matchweek 27 clash in the Premier League later on Saturday evening and former Liverpool manager Hodgson is expected to break the record of Newcastle United legend Sir Bobby Robson.

Roy Hodgson managed Liverpool between 2010 and 2011 though it must be said that he didn’t enjoy the best of times at Anfield.

In his pre-match thoughts ahead of the Leicester City clash, Roy Hodgson pointed out how he has been inspired by the aforementioned Attenborough.

Former Three Lions of England manager Hodgson has done well since he was appointed the Palace manager at the start of last season.

He replaced Frank De Boer who lasted only for the first four league games.

Roy Hodgson and Crystal Palace are unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions and that has taken them to the FA Cup quarterfinals where they will face London rivals Watford for a place in the last four.
