Roy Hodgson is the oldest manager in Premier League history, and current boss of Crystal Palace, with whom he joined in 2017.
Hodgson has achieved a great deal in what has been a lengthy management career across a varied range of clubs and competitions. The veteran gaffer has managed teams in England, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway and Denmark, and has also been in charge of the Switzerland, UAE and Finland national teams.
One of Hodgson's most successful periods was as Manager of Swedish side Malmo where he won five consecutive League Titles between 1985 and 1990, plus two domestic cups to boot during that period. Hodgson also had an excellent spell as Switzerland Manager where he masterminded qualification for the 1994 World Cup.
From 2007 to 2012 Hodgson was stationed in the Premier League, managing Fulham, Liverpool and then West Brom. At Fulham Hodgson did exceptionally well, guiding the club to 7th in the Premier League in 2008/09 and then remarkably to the Europa League Final the following season where they lost to Athletico Madrid. He also earned himself the LMA Manager of the year award for his efforts. Hodgson's exploits got him the job as Liverpool manager but he endured a torrid time at the club and lasted only 6 months.
In February 2011 Hodgson was appointed West Brom manager - a position he held for 15 months.
