Fonseca linked with Crystal Palace

John Solano

As doubts continue to surround his future at Roma, manager Paulo Fonseca is being linked with the post at Crystal Palace.

British outlet The Daily Mail reports that the London-based side has added Fonseca to their shortlist of candidates should Roy Hodgson depart.

Hodgson’s contract expires in June and he has yet to discuss a new deal with the club. Should the two sides decide to split, Palace could look to the Portuguese technician to takeover.

However, they’ve also weighed up other candidates, including: Frank Lampard, Swansea City’s Steve Cooper and Burnley’s Sean Dyche.

As for Fonseca, his fate in the Italian capital appears completely reliant on his team’s fortunes in the Europa League.

The Giallorossi’s ownership have explicitly stated this season’s objective is returning to the Champions League. Roma’s hopes in a top four finish have likely faded, and the Europa League remains their final hope.
