The Dutchman, who succeeded Sam Allardyce in June, lost all four of his Premier League games without scoring; the worst start of any top-flight club in 93 years.

The Eagles dominated in a 1-0 defeat at Burnley on Sunday and De Boer hoped an improved performance would save him, but instead he has been made the shortest-serving Premier League manager as of Monday morning.

De Boer had been appointed to revamp Palace’s style of football and make them more effective in possession; mirroring that of Ajax, with whom he won four Eredivisie titles before resigning in 2016.

 

After appointing the 47-year-old in June, chairman Steve Parish said: “There were 37 managers on the shortlist. I talked to all of them and said ‘we need an evolution over a period of time’.

“The technical detail is Frank’s world. We need to find a way of breaking down teams that give us the ball. If teams give us the ball, typically we lose. If we give them the ball, we beat them.”

Parish also answered fans’ frustrations on Twitter after Sunday’s defeat at Turf Moor, insisting the club needed to “stick together” – a sentiment echoed by injured winger Wilfried Zaha.

De Boer had vowed to fight and said he was “convinced” they could achieve their objectives, after losses to Huddersfield, Liverpool and Swansea, despite admitting he did not know what his future held beyond the weekend.
