Hodgson - Stinging Attack!
It`s widely accepted that Roy Hodgson took the Liverpool job because he wanted one last crack at managing a big club!
Perhaps deep down Roy knew that having taken Fulham to the Europa League Final there were always going to be offers on the table whilst also acknowledging that repeating such a success was always going to be nigh on impossible.
But having joined Liverpool, I have my suspicions that Roy might not be quite so enthusiastic about his new career opportunity now that circumstances have contrived to put him under the cosh.
As well as the poor start the club made to the season and the fact that a change of owner was also going to be a catalyst for a managerial upheaval scenario, Roy know appear to have become embroiled in a war of words with the former Liverpool manager, Rafael Benitez.
With Roy having criticised the standard of player that he`s inherited and his belief that Benitez didn`t use the likes of Kenny Dalglish as he has done, Benitez has launched a savage attack on Roy, remarking, whilst in London with his Inter Milan side for a Champions League tie with Spurs,
"I feel Mr Hodgson doesn`t understand. Every single press conference is worse than the last one. He`s talking about things he doesn`t know."
"Some people can`t see a priest on a mountain of sugar. He doesn`t understand, maybe he`s been in the job for not so long."
"When I was in charge we gave fans pride. We fought for the fans, we fought for the club and we fought for our players. Maybe he can`t understand this."
Priest on a mountain of sugar?
I bet Roy never had anything so sticky to deal with whilst at Craven Cottage!
Anyone else reckon that deep own the old-boy misses the place?
