Former England manager Roy Hodgson has revealed that he has no intention is to retire from management just yet.
After a disastrous Euro 2016 in which England once again failed to even reach the quarter-finals, Hodgson announced that he would be stepping down from his post after four years in charge of the national team. During this period, the former Liverpool and West Brom manager has been unable to make any impact at a major tournament. However, he will be credited for introducing the likes of Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy, Dele Alli, and the Raheem Sterling into the national team at a very young age.
At 68 years of age, it was thought that Hodgson would announced his retirement from management. Instead, Hodgson says that he will make a decision on his future once he returns from a holiday and he is likely to look at a return to Premier League football. Best known for his time at Fulham a couple of years ago, Hodgson has not experienced much success in the last few years. His time at Liverpool was a spectacular failure while he did not achieve much at West Brom either. It remains to be seen if he will receive a job offer from a club in the Premier League.
“I would have loved to stay on for another two years. However, I am pragmatic and I know we are in the results business. My contract was always up after the Euros, so now is the time for someone else to oversee the progress of this young, hungry and extremely talented group of players. They have been fantastic and have done everything that has been asked of them. I’m extremely disappointed of course about tonight’s result and, ultimately, our exit from the competition,” said Hodgson after announcing his resignation following the Euro 2016.
