Crystal Palace have been given a massive boost despite initial fears that Roy Hodgson will be barred from being on the touchline for the remainder of the season due to the coronavirus fears.
According to The Telegraph, a tier-one source, the Eagles boss has been given 'the go-ahead' to make a return to training and helm the club if the Premier League campaign gets back underway next month.
The veteran football manager, who is 73 years old, must follow the strict social distancing guidelines imposed by the United Kingdom government on the people over 70 amid the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
