Frank de Boer, appointed successor of former Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce said that he is excited to join the team.

The appointed 47-year-old who signed a three-year deal with the club has already laid out his plans for his new coaching club.

“The aim is to be a solid Premier League team, not to struggle with relegation,” said the Dutchman and furthered, “That is our main target—if we do more, that’s nice.”

De Boer who previously took pride in managing Ajax from 2010 to 2016 wants Palace to dominate opponents in the same way as his former club did. Ajax won the domestic league title in four consecutive seasons from 2011 until 2015.

With positive perspective, De Boer said he has a “good feeling” about Palace.

“The club can grow further and further,” he said. “They spend a lot of money and there is the possibility to do something well with that money.

“I’ve not met the players yet. We will look at one or two signings, but I think it is necessary to see all the players here first.”
