Crystal Palace eyeing Dyche as their new manager after shock Allardyce exit

Date Posted,May 23, 2017

Sean Dyche is on Crystal Palace ’s managerial short-list to replace Sam Allardyce , after his dramatic resignation.

Chairman Steve Parish has also sounded out Hull boss Marco Silva , but there is a feeling that he is set to return home to Portugal to take over at Porto. And that is likely to signal Palace switching their attentions to Dyche, who has done such an impressive job at Burnley .

Dyche has worked comparative wonders on a small budget at the Clarets, keeping the club in the Premier League for the first time in their history, and Turf Moor chiefs now face a battle to keep him.

Palace feel it could be the time when the former Watford player and manager is tempted to move back down south and they want a manager who will stay for the long term.

It comes after Allardyce’s departure on Tuesday, less than six months after taking over from Alan Pardew.

Parish, understandably, wants stability at Selhurst Park.

Manchester City title winner Roberto Mancini is another name in the frame, but he would prefer a Champions League club if he returns to England.

Silva is a manager in demand — Watford and Southampton have also been keeping tabs on him with Claude Puel set to leave St Mary’s and Walter Mazzarri gone after one season at Vicarage Road.

Although he could not keep Hull up after joining in January, they did show major signs of improvement under him. However, his short-term contract allows him to leave following their relegation.

The 39-year-old, who won the Portuguese Cup in 2015 as Sporting Lisbon boss, has already been offered the Porto job after talks and is in the final stages of negotiations.

Allardyce, set to get a £2million bonus for keeping Palace up, insists he has made a life choice to get out of management at age 62 and spend more time with his family.
