Crystal Palace have sacked Frank de Boer just four games into the new Premier League season.
De Boer was appointed as Sam Allardyce’s replacement in the summer, but a terrible start to the campaign has seen him become the first manager to be sacked this season.
A 1-0 defeat to Burnley means that the south London club are the first in Premier League history to lose each of their first four games without scoring.
Daniel Storey questioned the decision to sack De Boer after the Burnley loss, with Palace now lining Roy Hodgson to replace the Dutchman.
Frank De Boer sacked after 4 games: record for the the shortest 'permanent' Premier League managerial tenure in games.
