Ex-Claret Reid joins Crystal Palace
Burnley’s 1-0 win against Crystal Palace six days ago has led to wholesale changes at Selhurst Park, all beginning with the sacking of manager Frank de Boer after just 77 days and four Premier League games in charge.
Former England boss Roy Hodgson has replaced De Boer on a two year contract and he’s wasted no time in changing his backroom team. He brought in Ray Lewington, with whom he’d worked at Fulham and then with England, as his assistant and this morning some departures were confirmed.
Sammy Lee, Sam Allardyce’s assistant last season, has gone as have Orlando Trustfull and Ryland Morgans. Morgans was also appointed last January by Allardyce having left Liverpool while Trustfull was a De Boer appointment in July.
Palace have since confirmed the appointment of Steven Reid, who spent the 2014/15 season at Burnley before retiring as a player, as the new first team coach. Reid, who played for West Brom during the time Hodgson was manager, has been at Reading as first team coach since leaving Burnley.
He will now work with Hodgson and Lewington, starting today when they face Southampton in a televised Premier League game.
Reid joined Burnley from West Brom following our promotion in 2014. He made just eight appearances for us with the only start coming at West Brom in a game we lost 4-0. His final appearance came as a late substitute for Danny Ings, who was playing for Burnley for the last time, in our last game of the season at Aston Villa, this after he’d announced that week he was retiring from playing.Share this page :
