Blackburn boss Kean delighted for Hodgson over England appointment

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean is delighted for Roy Hodgson over his England appointment.

Kean worked with Hodgson at Fulham.

Kean said: "I said a couple of months ago that I thought there were two contenders - that Harry Redknapp was a fantastic candidate, and also Roy.

"The reason I mentioned Roy was because years and years ago I used to come (to Blackburn's training ground) and watch Roy when I was a youth team coach at Reading.

"I have seen him operate for a lot of years and he is fantastic coach. I think he will bring about an understanding of a team shape that people will enjoy working with.

"I'm sure if you speak to any players who have been coached by Roy, they will tell you want a good coach he is and I think it is a fantastic appointment."
