Fulham owner Mohamed Al Fayed remains confident Roy Hodgson will still be at the club next season despite speculation linking the manager with the vacant post at Liverpool.
Reports suggest the Merseysiders could step up their search for Rafael Benitez's successor by opening talks with the 62-year-old before he heads out to South Africa for a stint as a World Cup pundit.
But Al Fayed, who appointed Hodgson in December 2007, believes Hodgson has no reason to leave the London club. Quoted in the Sunday Mirror, Al Fayed said: "I don't think he'll leave me. I'm sure he'll have lots of approaches from other clubs, but I give him anything he wants to reach results and we have a very good relationship."
Hodgson's star has risen dramatically over the last couple of years, first by keeping Fulham in the Premier League and then steering the Cottagers into Europe and, last term, into the Europa League final.
