Roy Hodgson says there is “no question” Crystal Palace will feel Mamadou Sakho’s absence after he underwent knee surgery on Thursday.

The central defender suffered the injury in last week’s victory at Leicester, and there remains a risk he will not return this season.

Sakho has formed a solid partnership with James Tomkins during Roy Hodgson’s time at Palace, and the manager is in no doubt that the France international will be missed.

He said: “We are going to miss him until such time as he gets fit again. There’s no question of that. He has been very, very good for the bulk of the time I’ve been here.

“When I first came he was shrugging off some injuries but since he got fit, he has been exceptional, the latter half of last season and the whole of this season.

“Him and James Tomkins together have formed a fantastic partnership. There’s no way you can lose a player like that without missing him, but I am fortunate that in Scott Dann and Martin Kelly there are two experienced Premier League players (capable of deputising).

“The most important thing was the surgery was successful. There’s no timescale being put on that, but obviously it’s a surgical operation, so he’s not going to be coming back next week.”

Hodgson, at 71 the Premier League’s oldest ever manager, also expressed his “disappointment” that former club Fulham “harshly” chose to sack Claudio Ranieri after just 106 days at Craven Cottage – but he believes that in Scott Parker they have a potential successor with the ability to excel.

“Scott was an exceptionally good player, and had a wonderful career at West Ham and Tottenham,” said Hodgson, having managed the then-midfielder while with England.

“I’ve no doubt about his credentials, his potential. He has a nice personality and he has worked hard on his coaching badges, and to develop himself as a coach, though I have no dealings with him on those side of things.

“I can only wish him well, while bemoaning it is at the expense of someone like Ranieri. He (Parker) was a very, very dedicated professional and someone who maximised his career, who really brought out the best in what he had.

“He was an important member of my team going into the Euros in 2012. We will see how he does.

“I think it is harsh (on Ranieri). It doesn’t please me to see this situation, not only for Ranieri, but for Fulham, a club that is close to me.”
