Former Inter Milan coach Frank de Boer on Monday was appointed as the coach of English Premier League (EPL) football club Crystal Palace for three years.

De Boer has previously managed Dutch club Ajax and won four consecutive Eredivisie titles with them. His move to Inter Milan didn't work out anywhere near as well, with the former Dutch international skipper sacked less than 3 months into the job.

"De Boer was unveiled as the new manager at the club's training ground today in front of the world's media, on what is an historic day for the club as it also revealed its new main sponsor, ManBetX, in a record deal for the club," the club said in a statement.

Club chairman Steve Parish welcomed De Boer and said he was pleased to have the Dutchman on board.

"We have undertaken a thorough interview process to ensure we are in a position to appoint a manager of the calibre and experience that Frank brings with him. I am pleased to welcome him to Crystal Palace and I know he cannot wait to get started and prepare for our record breaking fifth season in the top flight," Steve Parish said.

De Boer too showed his happiness at being appointed as the club manager and said he was honoured to be a part of the historic club.

"I am thrilled to be appointed as manager of Crystal Palace Football Club. It is a great honour to take charge of such an historic club, a club that is known around the world for its hugely proud and passionate fan base," De Boer said.

He added, "This role is a hugely exciting opportunity for me, and I cannot wait to get started in the Premier League with the players and staff here in south London."
