Roy Hodgson is looking for a Premier League job after England exit


Ben Kenyon

Any takers?

Roy Hodgson looks like he’s back on the market after his ignominious England exit.

The 68-year-old quit his England post after the Three Lions’ disastrous loss against minnows Iceland which knocked them out of Euro 2016.

But rather than take extended time away from the game to take stock and reflect, it looks like he could be ready to go again.

Hodgson said he was ‘raw and fragile’ after the Iceland defeat but he’s currently away on holiday planning his next career move, according to The Times.

He reportedly has no plans to retire despite England’s poor performance during the European Championships, and he could be looking for a job in the Premier League.

The former Blackburn Rovers, Liverpool, Fulham and West Bromwich Albion boss doesn’t want to end his career on such a low point and fancies another crack at managing in England’s top flight rather than taking a lucrative job in China.

It remains to be seen if any top side would take a punt on him after his England and Liverpool tenures. Although he guided Fulham to the Europa League final and helped West Brom to their highest place finish since 1981 before he took the England job.

But if the FA poach Sam Allardyce or Alan Pardew for the vacant England job, he could be in with a shout.

Bookies have him at 6/1 to be next Sunderland boss, 7/1 to turn up at Hull or Bournemouth or 8/1 for a stint at his old club West Brom next.
