Crystal Palace hires De Boer with accent on promoting youth

By making young players the cornerstone of his successful Ajax team, Frank de Boer helped lay the foundations for the reawakening of one of European soccer's most storied clubs.

De Boer has been challenged to have a similarly transformative effect on English team Crystal Palace.

The former Netherlands defender was hired as manager of Palace on a three-year deal on Monday, with club chairman Steve Parish saying De Boer's reputation for "bringing on young talent" was crucial to the decision.
