Defensive concerns for Fulham ahead of Crystal Palace clash

Roy Hodgson was rewarded a one-year extension to his present contract for retaining Crystal Palace’s Premier League status

Roy Hodgson has signed a contract extension which ties him to Crystal Palace until 2020.

Premier League club Fulham, who were promoted to the top flight at end of last term, completed their fourth Deadline Day deal.

The Argentine has played a total of 38 games in the red and white shirt: 25 in the league, seven in the Champions League and six in the Copa del Rey.

This season will mark Croydon-born Hodgson's 43rd year in football management.

"And having stood on the terraces in the 1950s, it is a wonderful thing to be managing my boyhood club all these years later".

"I'm not Santa Claus - there are no presents", Jokanovic told a press conference on Friday on the eve of their opener with fellow London side Crystal Palace. The former Racing Club man has bounced around since moving to Europe but now he has landed in England.

"We arrived last in the Premier League (through the play-offs), so our principal target has to be to stay up", said Jokanovic, who in his previous job in England guided Watford to promotion to the Premier League but then left.

'I am with Palace and I don't have time to think about the speculation'.

"I am equally pleased that (assistant manager) Ray Lewington has also extended for the same period, putting us in great shape for this season and beyond".
