FA Approach Roy Hodgson to Become England Manager

In a shock move, The FA has announced that it has received permission from West Bromwich Albion to approach Roy Hodgson for discussions about becoming the next England manager.

“Roy is the only manager we have approached and we remain on course to make an appointment within the timescale we set-out soon after Fabio Capello’s departure.

“Further conversations will now take place with Roy and my Club England colleagues before any further announcements can be made.”

Assuming that Roy Hodgson will accept the position, and why wouldn’t he based on the honor that the position is, Hodgson will become manager of the England national team for Euro 2012.

The move comes as a surprise after Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp was the favorite to get the position after the 2011-12 Premier League season ends. However, Redknapp has suffered an appalling run of form as Tottenham manager since he was touted as the probable replacement for Capello.

Hodgson’s previous appointments as manager include stints with countries such as Switzerland, Finland and United Arab Emirates, while his club management career has included Inter Milan, Liverpool, Udinese and Blackburn Rovers.
