FA given permission to talk to Roy Hodgson
The FA have confirmed that West Brom have given them permission to talk to West Brom manager Roy Hodgson.
The FA statement says:
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.”
With all the media led hype for Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp being the only candidate is this a smoke screen? Or will Harry be approached next?
The mood amongst Spurs fans is mixed after a poor run of results that mirrored last season.
Who knows, but you can’t argue with Roy’s credentials as a manager in Europe and managing International teams he’s got the experience.
We’ll see if the FA now make an approach for Redknapp too…
