Pundit baffled by Crystal Palace’s decision to dismiss De Boer

The football sphere in England has been dominated by the news that Crystal Palace have sacked manager Frank de Boer after just five games.

The Eagles announced on their official website that the Dutchman has left the club after failing to guide the team to a win in four Premier League matches.

In fact, the team lost every one of them and failed to score, which has placed the club second from bottom in the standings.

The dismissal means that De Boer had the shortest reign in Premier League history.

Nowadays, the swift sacking of managers is no longer a shock to most in the football community, but this latest exit has been roundly criticised.

De Boer, who has previously been linked to Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, had never coached before in England, but now his only experience is a miserable one.

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has been left reeling after the announcement, and he made his feelings clear on social media.
