Confirmed: First 2017/18 Premier League Manager Sacked

By Keegan Kruger - Sep 11, 2017 12:58 PM @KeeganKruger

Former Netherlands international Frank de Boer has become the first Premier League manager to be sacked this season.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see five managers currently without a job.

The 47-year-old's axing from Crystal Palace has come as no surprise to some as his team failed to secure point or even score a goal in their first four Premier League games of the campaign.

The club announced the manager's departure on their official website, and thanked him for his work over the past couple of months.

"Crystal Palace Football Club have this morning parted company with Frank de Boer," the statement read. 

"We would like to thank Frank for his dedication and hard work during his time at the club.

"A new manager will be appointed in due course and we wish Frank the very best of luck for the future.

"There will be no further comment at this time."

Former England manager Roy Hodgson is believed to be the favourite to replace the former Ajax Amsterdam coach, who took over from Sam Allardyce at the beginning of the season.

Do you think it is fair that the manager got sacked after just four games? Have your say in the comments section below.
