Frank de Boer feeling 'positive' about Crystal Palace future despite exit talk

Crystal Palace boss Frank de Boer remains "very positive for the future" despite suggestions his job is on the line at Burnley on Sunday.

The former Ajax and Inter Milan head coach was only appointed by Palace during the summer, but three defeats from three Premier League matches have left his position under scrutiny.

During the international break, chairman Steve Parish admitted the start to the new campaign had "not been great," adding: "It's a results-based business, so if you don't get wins... Frank knows that.''

It has been reported that former England manager Roy Hodgson, who grew up in Croydon, could be under consideration to take over from De Boer should results not improve this weekend.

But De Boer told a news conference: "I have always had serious conversations with Steve. We come together one day in the week and talk about what is going on.

"I am not so concerned about that, I think we have a very good relationship. We know what we want and everybody is of course very disappointed in our results.

"But we know also this is not a one-day project, it is from the long term. Everybody knows that. You cannot expect that suddenly we are going to win every game. Everybody calculates we should have a minimum of four points, but that is not the case.

"It is a work in progress still. I have been in professional football now for 30 years and sometimes it takes more time. We do everything in our possibilities to change that around.

"I have a very good positive feeling from what we have seen in this week when everyone was together. There was a very positive vibe in the team, so I am very positive for the future.''
