Gary Neville slams talk of Hodgson rift


London (AFP) – Former England assistant coach Gary Neville has blasted reports he fell out with Roy Hodgson during Euro 2016.

The Observer newspaper reported on Sunday that then England manager Hodgson and Neville had disagreed over tactics during the tournament which ended for England when they suffered a humiliating loss to Iceland in the last 16.

The Observer added that while there was mutual respect, Neville and goalkeeping coach  Dave Watson had disagreements with Hodgson.

But former Manchester United and England defender Neville, responding on Twitter, said: “This is absolute bulls***! Apology? Removal of article? Let me know!”

Hodgson’s contract was due to expire after Euro 2016 in any event but he resigned immediately, knowing there was no way he would be given a new deal following the Iceland defeat. 

Neville and fellow assistant Ray Lewington also left their England roles.
