HUGE SURPRISED: Carlton Palmer reacts as Crystal Palace move Ipswich Town’s boss Kieran McKenna as Roy Hodgson replacement

Since joining Ipswich Town, Kieran McKenna has received praise from many quarters as a result of some enormous successes in East Anglia.

However, that was just the beginning of the Northern Irishman’s excellent stay. The Tractor Boys were promoted last season with 98 points, coming second to Plymouth Argyle in the third tier as they achieved a return to the Championship.
With 20 points from their first nine games, the team is now second in the table behind Leicester, which would normally be enough to take first place except for the Foxes’ recent run. And, with back-to-back promotions for the Suffolk team assured, it has provided McKenna with a stage to shine in the  Premier League – though Carlton Palmer believes it would take an unbelievable offer to prise him away from Portman Road

What is the most recent information on Kieran McKenna’s employment status at Ipswich?

According to a report by Alan Nixon on Sunday, October 1st, Roy Hodgson’s long-term successors have already been considered by Crystal Palace.

Despite their Saturday victory over Manchester United, the Eagles will need to make long-term plans without Hodgson, and the highly regarded McKenna is on their shortlist.


Paulo Fonseca is rumored to be Palace’s main target because he was on their list before selecting Patrick Vieira, and Hodgson is expected to stay through the conclusion of the season.

Palace considered possibilities in the summer for when Hodgson retires, with McKenna one of their top choices – albeit he has recently signed a new long-term contract at Portman Road.

Their strong start to the Championship season has seen them challenge Leicester as early title contenders.

What has Kieran McKenna’s future at Ipswich Town been said by Carlton Palmer?

Palmer told Football League World exclusively that it would take something extraordinary to entice McKenna away from Ipswich Town at the present.

“It’s every manager’s and player’s dream to manage and play at the highest level, and Kieran McKenna will be no exception.” Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in him as a replacement for Roy Hodgson,” Palmer began.

“Roy is 76 years old; how many more seasons will he want to be in charge?” Crystal Palace are correct to begin looking for his eventual replacement, even though Roy is doing an excellent job at Palace, as seen by their recent win over Manchester United.

“Without a doubt, Kieran would be a good fit for Palace, but I believe Kieran is on his way to the top of the manager’s game.”

“As I have stated, Kieran is at a club where the owners have money and are backing him. He is not planning to leave Ipswich in the near future. They are now second in the Championship, six points clear of Cardiff, who hold the final play-off berth.

“Ipswich and Kieran have a good chance of achieving back-to-back promotions, which would be fantastic.” I believe Kieran would only consider leaving Ipswich if a top-six Premier League club came knocking.”
