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."
