Manager Bio

Oliver Glasner was appointed Crystal Palace head coach on 19 February 2024.

The 49-year-old Austrian joined the Eagles after a successful spell at Eintracht Frankfurt, with whom he won the UEFA Europa League in 2022.

Glasner played professionally as a defender for 19 years, making over 500 appearances for Austrian club Ried.

Three years after his retirement he coached the same side for a season before taking over at German side Wolfsburg in 2019.

There he managed to qualify for the Champions League via finishing fourth in the 2020-21 Bundesliga season. Since then they have not managed a higher finishing position.

The Austrian remained in Germany but changed to Eintracht, where his talents where displayed in the 2021/22 Europa League, reaching the final before beating Rangers 5-4 on penalties. This earned the club Champions League qualification for the first time in their history.
