Former Premier League star Dean Windass insists that Roy Hodgson will have a say in his own replacement at Crystal Palace, in an exclusive interview with Football FanCast.
The former England boss has called time on a four year spell at Selhurst Park, with his last game to come this Sunday against Liverpool.
Palace have again cruised to safety, as the club sit 13th in the table, 16 points clear of the relegation zone.
They have enjoyed some real stability under Hodgson, with Palace finishing 11th in 2017/18, 12th in 18/19, and 14th in 19/20.
It remains to be seen who will replace him at Palace but names have already been linked, including ex-Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.
And Windass believes that Hodgson will be given the opportunity to name his own successor, much like Sir Alex Ferguson did at Manchester United, with the appointment of David Moyes.
Asked if he would have that chance, Windass told FFC: “Yeah I think so. He has a lot of respect with the owner, Steve Parish.”
