Roy Hodgson has thanked Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti for allowing him to take the Fulham job - but does not think the Italian will be so generous to lend the Londoners some players for their battle against relegation.

The 60-year-old is back in the Barclays Premier League for the first time in nine years having succeeded the sacked Lawrie Sanchez at Craven Cottage. Hodgson had two spells at Inter and had promised Moratti he would return for a third spell once he severed ties with the Finland, this time in a behind-the-scenes role.

Hodgson said: "I´m very grateful to Massimo Moratti for releasing me from a promise I made in 2006. He half understood it was easy for me to make that promise at the time with two years of the Finnish national team still in front of me."
