- Scrutiny on former England manager after winless run
- Cooper could be appointed without paying compensation
Roy Hodgson is under mounting pressure after eight games without a win, with Steve Cooper in the frame to replace the Crystal Palace manager after his sacking by Nottingham Forest last week.
It is understood that Hodgson, who was seen spitting on the ground in frustration as he made his way down the tunnel after Palace conceded a late penalty to lose at Chelsea on Wednesday, is facing increasing scrutiny from the club’s chairman, Steve Parish, after the team’s plummet down the table in recent weeks. Palace are only three points clear of Luton in the relegation zone, and Rob Edwards’s side have played a game fewer.
