Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has hit out at the short-term thinking of many clubs as he prepares to face Bournemouth. Palace conclude their Premier League season at home to Bournemouth, and Hodgson is encouraged that their promising manager Eddie Howe has not appeared under pressure, despite their recent poor results.

“The people at Bournemouth – I’d be very surprised if they didn’t understand, ‘We’re lucky here, we’ve found ourselves a manager and a coaching staff that has brought us to where we are and done a fantastic job in keeping us there’,” said Hodgson.
“I’d be surprised if they were thinking, ‘Let’s jump ship from these guys because we’ve lost a couple of games’. “The short-termism around modern managers is something I can’t possibly fathom. “This is the way social media and the media and the fans operate and I should come to terms with it but I don’t understand it at all.”
