De Boer believes Palace deserved the three points

De Boer believes Palace deserved the three points

The Dutchman departed on Monday, only 77 days into a three-year contract, after Palace became the first team in England's top division to lose their opening four league fixtures without scoring, since Preston 93 years ago.

De Boer's reign is the shortest in the Premier League era in terms of matches played.

In what many were already considering a must-win game for De Boer, the Eagles failed to rise to the occasion, with the Clarets taking advantage of a sloppy pass from Lee Chung Yong.

Rather than saying rumours are simply rumours and essentially mean little, Ronald explained: "It seems like there's rumours..."

On a day where Crystal Palace supporters are suffering beyond belief, it appears there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Palace chairman Steve Parish was at Turf Moor on Sunday, and said afterwards: "It's a awful start but we have to stick together".

"Frank de Boer is sacked after four matches and next season something incredible again, so nothing surprises me".

Cape Town - Crystal Palace manager Frank De Boer felt hard done by after his side were beaten 1-0 by Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday.

Barton also played for both Newcastle and QPR, two of English football's more volatile clubs, and wrote on social media: "I feel sorry for Frank de Boer". We know we are better than this.

"You were banking on him winning his first few games and that was not a given!"

Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer has revealed advice given to him from former Manchester United and Netherlands boss Louis Van Gaal has given him hope to cope with life in the Premier League.

He is expected to be in the dugout on Saturday lunchtime for Palace's next game, when they host fellow strugglers Southampton at Selhurst Park.
