Frank de Boer has been unveiled as the new head coach of Premier League side Crystal Palace. 

The Eagles have appointed the former Ajax and Inter Milan boss on a three-year deal to replace Sam Allardyce, who retired at the end of last season.

“I am thrilled to be appointed as manager of Crystal Palace Football Club. It is a great honour to take charge of such an historic club, a club that is known around the world for its hugely proud and passionate fan base.

“The role is a hugely exciting opportunity for me, and I cannot wait to get started in the Premier League with the players and staff here in south London.”

De Boer won four Eredivisie titles in five years with Ajax before leaving to take over at Inter Milan last summer. However, the Dutchman was sacked after only a few months and had been out of work since.
