Roy Hodgson: 'Crystal Palace situation is painful'

Roy Hodgson GETTY Roy Hodgson has been brought in by Crystal Palace to replace Frank de Boer
Damon Campbell | 17 September, 2017, 01:01

Roy Hodgson felt Crystal Palace were lacking in self-belief as they slipped to a 1-0 defeat to Southampton in his first game in charge.

And while Palace will surely show more faith in 70-year-old replacement Roy Hodgson, an experienced "safe pair of hands" appointed to guide the club through the mess rather than revolutionise their style of play, question marks will undoubtedly be asked if he too endured a hard start to life with the London club.

"Matches do get lost when you're a football coach, particularly in tournament football and the tournament is over", Hodgson said of the Iceland defeat, which came to define his four years with England.

Hodgson, who has coached 15 previous clubs in eight countries as well as leading the Switzerland and Finland national teams, said that Palace were a "good team" despite their terrible start to the season.

Key personnel Christian Benteke, Mamadou Sakho and Luka Milivojevic were all present during the session as they look to make a positive start under their new manager.

"It's a good team that started the season poorly".

"We've handicapped ourselves by not taking any points in the first four games", he said.

In the last five head to head records between these two teams in English Carabao Cup, English Premier League, and English FA Cup, Southampton won three matches and two matches by Crystal Palace. Very confident. I will not fulfill this task if I do not believe in the opportunities we have.

Hodgson said at the time of his appointment that the challenge he had accepted was an easier one than those presented by Fulham and West Brom, On his first game's evidence, that may yet prove wrong.

Crystal Palace is still without Wilfried Zaha and his injury has caused the Eagles a lot of problems.

Hodgson on his return to the dugout: "I am really pleased to be back". Hopefully, he will be getting better every single week, but I am happy with that, because it's not about just Virgil.

"The anxiety, especially in the first half, was there for all to see, in the second there were better signs, we were prepared to put our foot on the ball and pass it".
