Football News: Glazers Hinder Man Utd Takeover, Spurs to Announce Conte Sacking, Hodgson Returns to Crystal Palace

Stay up-to-date with the latest football news, views, and gossip on talkSPORT.com’s dedicated live blog. From Antonio Conte’s potential sacking as Tottenham manager to Roy Hodgson’s return to Crystal Palace, there’s plenty to keep football fans in the loop.

Conte on the Brink at Tottenham

Antonio Conte’s future as Tottenham manager is in doubt after his recent outburst against the club’s players and ownership. The Italian coach slammed the “selfish” attitude of his squad and criticized the club’s transfer policy, suggesting that he had not been given the players he needed to succeed.

Conte’s comments came after Tottenham’s 3-2 defeat to West Ham United, which left them ninth in the Premier League table. The defeat was their fourth in five games, and their poor form has put Conte’s job under threat.

According to reports, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is considering sacking Conte this week. The club’s hierarchy is said to be unhappy with the manager’s public criticism of the team and his confrontational style.

If Conte is sacked, it will be the second time in three years that Tottenham have parted ways with a manager mid-season. Jose Mourinho was dismissed in April 2021, and Ryan Mason took over as interim coach for the remainder of the campaign.

Hodgson Returns to Crystal Palace

Roy Hodgson has returned to Crystal Palace as interim manager following the sacking of Patrick Vieira. The former England boss will take charge of the team until the end of the season.

Hodgson previously managed Palace from 2017 to 2021, leading them to an impressive 12th-place finish in his first season in charge. He left the club at the end of the 2020-21 campaign, and Vieira was appointed as his successor.

However, Vieira’s tenure at Selhurst Park was short-lived, with the Frenchman being sacked after just six months in charge. Palace are currently 14th in the Premier League table, having won just four of their 16 games this season.

Hodgson’s return to Palace has been welcomed by fans and players alike. The 74-year-old is a respected figure in English football, and his experience could be crucial in helping Palace avoid relegation this season.

Manchester United Takeover Talks Continue

The takeover talks at Manchester United continue to develop, with reports suggesting that a Qatari bid is expected to make an improved offer for the club. However, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, one of the richest men in Britain, has insisted that he won’t pay a “stupid price” for the club.

The Glazer family, who currently own Manchester United, have been under pressure from fans to sell the club following their involvement in the failed European Super League project. The Qatari bid is said to be worth around £3 billion, while Ratcliffe’s offer is believed to be in the region of £2 billion.

It remains to be seen whether the Glazers will accept either offer, but there is no doubt that Manchester United is one of the most valuable football clubs in the world. The club has a global fan base and generates huge revenues from merchandise sales and sponsorship deals.
