New Fulham manager Roy Hodgson insists he has nothing to prove to English football fans.

The 60-year-old´s only previous job in the top flight ended with him leaving Blackburn by mutual consent with Rovers bottom of the table in November 1998, but now charged with keeping the free-falling Cottagers in the Barclays Premier League following the sacking of Lawrie Sanchez, Hodgson is adamant he is under no extra pressure given that past failure.

Asked if he had to prove his credentials in England, he replied: "No. Why should I need to prove myself more here than if I took a job in Germany or Russia or Greece. You always need to prove yourself."
