Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson fed up of being a loser

Hodgson is fed up

Roy Hodgson has admitted he is fed up after seeing his side drop points again.

Crystal Palace lost to Everton after missing a penalty and seeing the Toffees score two late goals.

Now, he’s claimed the feeling of losing all the time is getting to him.

He also made it clear Palace need to score more goals.

Hodgson lamented the fact they missed a penalty that could have seen them take a commanding lead in the game.

It was a huge win for Everton, but a massive blow for Palace.

“The first goal was a massive blow after defending so well,” he told Sky Sports.

“Also, the chance to put ourselves in a commanding position and not take it from the penalty.

“It’s hard to stand here as a loser again. I could have been standing here as a winner or someone who has coached their team to a positive point. But they scored the goals and we didn’t.”

A relegation fight

It was a hard blow for Palace to take.

It simply was not their day. Though that will be scant consolation to their fans and indeed players and manager.
