Roy Hodgson is "satisfied" with his first 12 months at West Brom after instantly returning to football following his sacking by Liverpool.

Hodgson, who will celebrate his first anniversary with the club this weekend, was relieved of his duties at Anfield in January last year and was appointed head coach at the Hawthorns just 37 days later.

He steered the Baggies out of the bottom three into 11th spot and this season Albion have stayed out of the relegation zone, despite a poor run of home form, in their bid to become a Premier League force. Hodgson said: "After leaving Liverpool, I suppose it was a bit of a bold decision to go straight back into football - especially at a club that was in danger of relegation."
