Stam encourages Eagles to show patience for De Boer

 

By Staff Reporter

Frank de Boer needs patience from Crystal Palace, but will know he is on borrowed time, according to fellow Dutchman and Reading boss Jaap Stam.

The former Ajax and Inter Milan head coach was only appointed in the summer but, after starting the new campaign by losing all three Premier League games, has found his future under the spotlight.

Should the Eagles get beaten again at Burnley on Sunday, it has been suggested De Boer could be axed.

Stam - who worked under De Boer as assistant coach at Ajax - said: "The club made a decision to get Frank as manager because of his way of working and how he wanted to play, but as a manager to go to England to work and get success straight away is not easy, I know that.

"Sometimes, though, as a manager you need to have time as well to build something, to create a certain atmosphere within the group and a certain belief to do well and get results.

"The only thing is - are we patient enough? Do you get the time? That is not always the case."
