After a very turbulent and highly entertaining 2016/2017 Premier league season, it is time for the board of respected clubs to sit down and underline the successes and failures of the previous season. Some of those changes will most likely include a change in management in some clubs. The season itself was “deadly” to six managers, with the first victim being Francesco Guidolin, who left Swansea in October. Swansea eventually stayed in the league, so the manager’s change was the right one.

After the season ended in late May, Sam Allardyce surprisingly announced his retirement from management effective immediately, which left Crystal Palace without a manager and in search of a new one. It was pretty done-deal with Marco Silva, who eventually went to manage Watford for the upcoming season. However, there is still a few managers out there that would accept the job in the Premier league.

Among the leading candidates for a job in Crystal Palace is the current Fulham manager, 48-year old Serb Slaviša Jokanović. Jokanović was on a verge of being promoted to the Premier league, but his team lost against Reading in the play-off game. Jokanović actually got promoted once, when he led Watford in 2015, but he could not agree a new deal with the management and eventually left. Jokanović, former Chelsea player, is certainly Premier league quality and he has been very productive in England so far, managing in the Championship. It is understood that there is compensation fee for Jokanović in his Fulham contract, so it will be interesting in the next few days.

Garry Monk is best known for his time at Swansea, both as player and as manager. He served as manager at the Welsh club back in 2015, but was sacked after series of bad results. He returned to management last year, signing a one-year contract with Leeds United. Great form during the season led to Leeds being in contention for a Premier league promotion, but very bad form in the last eight games led Leeds finishing seventh in the season. Monk left the post and could be on his way back in the Premier league. His style of football would likely fit Palace’s game so if a deal with Jokanović could not be agreed, he is definitely next in line.

The final play-off game is still ahead of us, but Crystal Palace is carefully waiting for the result. Huddersfield manager David Wagner is on the radar of the Premier league club. Wagner finished fifth in the league and is one the verge to qualifying Huddersfield to the Premier league for the first time. It is being reported that he and Jokanović are the two managers set to battle it out for the place at the helm of Crystal Palace. Wagner is known to be a close friend and a protégée of  Jurgen Klopp’s managerial wisdom , with whom he worked in Borussia Dortmund so there has to be something in him.
