His managerial career started in 1976 which lasted all the way to 2019 in the current day.
Roy Hodgson has won many individual achievements including the Premier League Manager of the Month award in August 1997, December 1997, October 2009 and February 2010 along with the LMA Manager of the Year award in 2010. He’s also won many cups around Europe such as the Swiss Cup in 1990 and the Allsvenskan in 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988 and 1989.
In 2012, England announced Roy Hodgson as the new manager of the English National team after replacing Fabio Capello. An uninspiring 4 years in the job saw disappointing results in every major tournament under Roy Hodgson. They only reached the quarterfinals of the 2012 Euros, the group stages of the 2014 World Cup and a famous loss against Iceland in the 2016 European Championships. Hodgson parted ways with the English National team following the disappointing 2016 major tournament and stayed out of football for a year.
Hodgson was appointed as Crystal Palace manager in September 2017 as he replaced the previous manager Frank De Boer who was sacked. In his two seasons at the club, Hodgson has guided the club to an 11th and 12th placed finish and the fans will hope they can improve on these two past league positions in the upcoming campaign. Hodgson will want to continue in the Crystal Palace job for the foreseeable future but will have to improve his results if he is to do so.
