Palace players upset after Roy Hodgson hospitalized in health scare

Crystal Palace’s team were shaken after their manager, Roy Hodgson, collapsed during training and had to be hospitalized. The 76-year-old received immediate care and is now stable, but will not be able to manage the upcoming match.

Instead, Ray Lewington and Paddy McCarthy will take over. The incident left the first-team squad distressed, and there are reports that Hodgson may consider stepping away from football for good.

He has been under pressure due to the team’s poor performance, and his health scare has added complexity to the situation. There are advanced discussions for Oliver Glasner to replace Hodgson as the new manager, along with the possible addition of Emmanuel Pogatetz as an assistant coach.

While a deal for Glasner is not yet fully sealed, it is expected that he will step into Hodgson’s shoes in the near future. Hodgson, who was set to hold a press conference before falling ill, may have managed Palace for the last time.

The club has been considering various candidates for his successor, but it seems likely that Glasner will take over. The timing of any announcement will be respectful towards Hodgson, who has served the club well during his tenure.
