Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has backed Roy Hodgson to take charge of Great Britain's football team at the 2012 Olympics in London.
Hodgson's name has been suggested due to his wealth of coaching experience and the work he did at Fulham last year when he earned them a place in the Europa League.
"There's no surprise at all because I think he's a man of intelligence, of big experience and is completely entitled to lead the Olympic team of England," said Wenger.
"Of course he's among the top of the English managers; you look at his CV.
"I believe as well this is a job where you consider the lengths at a top level of a manager to consider 'is he top level or not' and I believe he's been a long time at the top level. That's the most difficult."
