Hodgson’s Decision Backfires

The injury to Olise is a significant setback for Crystal Palace, especially with another key player, Eberechi Eze, also unavailable. Furthermore, speculation about Olise’s future at the club has been fueled by interest from top teams like Chelsea, Manchester United, and Arsenal, adding to the pressure on Hodgson.

Uncertain Future for Hodgson

Roy Hodgson’s one-year deal with Crystal Palace is set to expire at the end of the season, and the team’s recent struggles and fan dissatisfaction only add to the uncertainty surrounding his future at the club.
