London, Feb 20 (IANS) Crystal Palace have announced appointment of Oliver Glasner their manager a few hours after Roy Hodgson stepped down from his post as first-team manager.

Glasner has signed a deal to become the Eagles' boss until the end of the 2025/2026 season.

"I am very happy to join Crystal Palace F.C. as manager. I am looking forward to working with the talented squad, meeting the club’s supporters and experiencing the Selhurst Park atmosphere I have heard so much about. It has been a pleasure to meet with Steve and Dougie, and I am looking forward to working with them to achieve our goals," Glasner told club's official website late on Monday night.

Most recently, Glasner managed Eintracht Frankfurt to historic success winning the 2021/22 UEFA Europa League, the club’s first continental trophy in more than 40 years. This was achieved in Glasner’s first season in charge of Die Adler (‘the Eagles’).
