Frank de Boer has been appointed as Crystal Palace manager on a three-year contract.

The former Holland international will become Palace’s fifth permanent manager in four years and the third manager in the last 12 months.

The 47-year old is succeeding Sam Allardyce, who surprisingly resigned on May 24 after leading the Eagles to Premier League safety.

“We have undertaken a thorough interview process to ensure we are in a position to appoint a manager of the calibre and experience that Frank brings with him,” Steve Parish, Palace chairman said in a statement on the club’s website on Monday.

“I am pleased to welcome him to Crystal Palace and I know he cannot wait to get started and prepare for our record breaking fifth season in the top flight.

De Boer said he’s excited to join Palace, and noted that he’s anticipating coaching the Premier League side.

“I am thrilled to be appointed as manager of Crystal Palace Football Club. It is a great honour to take charge of such an historic club, a club that is known around the world for its hugely proud and passionate fan base,” he said.

“This role is a hugely exciting opportunity for me, and I cannot wait to get started in the Premier League with the players and staff here in south London.”

De Boer has been out of work since he was sacked by Inter in November 2016 after three months in charge.

That came after a successful spell at Ajax, where he began his playing career in 1988 and won the Champions League as a player seven years later.
