Crystal Palace: Brede Hangeland on manager's methods

Crystal Palace have turned to former England manager Roy Hodgson to pick up the pieces following Frank de Boer's brief reign as boss.

Hodgson's search for Palace's first Premier League point - and goal - of the season starts with a home game against Southampton on Saturday.

But his hard work will have already begun at the club's Beckenham training ground.

Former Fulham and Palace defender Brede Hangeland, who worked under Hodgson at the Cottagers and Norwegian side Viking FK, tells BBC Sport about his old manager's methods, and why they might be perfectly suited to a club like Palace.

Hodgson will follow the same recipe that he has done for many, many years - a big part of his management approach is his day-to-day work with the team.

He thrives on that contact, which is why he probably enjoys being a club coach more than working with a national side.

His sessions are very structured and for some players they will appear to be boring because of the repetition of the same tactical drills again and again and again.

But that is his method, and the Palace players are going to have to get used to it, because he will be working them incredibly hard.

Hodgson's approach is very hands-on - he loves to be on the training ground working with you - and he knows exactly what he wants from you in terms of the team's organisation and shape.

To get his message across to the players, he just practises and practises that from here to eternity.
