Frank de Boer has been sacked after just four matches in charge of Crystal Palace.
The final nail in the coffin came with a 1-0 defeat at Burnley on Sunday.
Former England manager Roy Hodgson is the odds-on favourite to take over at Selhurst Park.
Some reports claim the 70-year-old has already signed a two-year deal with the club.
Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish had appeared to back De Boer last night after urging supporters to “stick together” in a Twitter spat with furious Eagles fans.
De Boer admitted he was not sure if he would still be in charge by the end of today after the Burnley defeat.
Replying to them, he tweeted: “We’re four games in, it’s a terrible start but we have to stick together. People are frustrated, I’m frustrated so are the management and players.
“We know we’re better than this. I’m happy for people to vent at me, buck stops with me and I’ve never run away from that.
“I’m defending everyone at the club who’s working their a**e off to turn this around. Football teams lose games, it happens.
“Get some placards and a petition up, I’ll stand my record up against any chairman we’ve had in 118 years.”
De Boer believed his side had done enough to buy him more time.
The 47-year-old said: “I don’t know what will happen next. I just focus on what I can control my staff, the players and keep thinking about the next game.” (thesun)
