A month after winning the Premier League manager of the month award for March 2003, Roeder had a brain tumour diagnosed, and after emergency treatment, he returned to work in July of that year.
In February 2006, he took over as caretaker manager of Newcastle, lifting them from the bottom of the Premier League table to finish seventh as well as leading them to the UEFA Intertoto Cup.
Roeder's most recent position was as manager of Norwich City in 2009.
The Premier League offers sincere condolences to Glenn's family, friends and all those who worked with him at this sad time.
