Steve Parish talked about what he expects from the manager and is hoping for a long-term success with the club

Crystal Palace chairman believes his team will have a successful era with Roy Hodgson at the helm.

The Eagles awarded Hodgson a contract extension, keeping him with the team until 2020.

And in a talk to Sky Sports News, Parish has praised his manager.

“He can help our football club, in my opinion, beyond just the first XI, and into the future,” he said.

“I do hope we can maintain a very long relationship with Roy because he is a fantastic football person, very level-headed and he brings a lot to the football club.”

“Staying in this division is ground zero, but of course we’ve got a few things that we haven’t had in recent years, like stability, we’ve gone through a summer with a manager – I’ve managed to keep a manager for the summer – and the place feels really good,” he added.

“But we know that’s sometimes when things can come to bite you. We’re really not complacent, we’re working super hard, and going to give this season our best shot to at least have less stress this season.”
