Perryman backing for Hodgson

Next Story

England fans' spokesman Mark Perryman has backed the appointment of Roy Hodgson as Fabio Capello's successor, but warned supporters to forget any prospect of winning a trophy for at least four years.

Hodgson is due to meet the four-man Club England board on Monday for talks over the England vacancy. It is widely anticipated Hodgson will accept the offer, which has come as a major surprise because Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp had been the overwhelming favourite.

Perryman said: "Roy Hodgson will be a steady hand on the till. He took Fulham to the Europa League final, which was a magnificent achievement and on the basis that the best three managers around just now, Marcelo Bielsa, Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho, wouldn't want the job, Hodgson is a good choice."
