Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan believes that Roy Hodgson is not the right man to lead the Eagles forward.

Palace are currently 14th in the Premier League table, six points away from the relegation zone after 26 matches.

Jordan was speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT and admitted that he feels Hodgson is a safe option but one who doesn’t look likely to help the club progress.

Hodgson’s current deal with the Eagles expires at the end of the season and the club are set to offer him a one-year extension, but the boss reportedly wants assurances of new signings in the summer before signing on the dotted line.

Some Palace fans on Twitter couldn’t help but agree with the former chairman’s verdict on the previous Liverpool and England manager.

As reported on the official Premier League website, Hodgson has won four Manager of the Month awards during his managerial career but that didn’t spare him the wrath of these fans, who defended Jordan’s comments.

Do you want Hodgson to be in charge of Palace next season?
