Everton boss Moyes admits Hodgson set him on his way in management

Everton boss David Moyes admits a study tour of Udinese while Roy Hodgson was in charge set him on his way to a career in management.

Moyes still reflects on the importance of spending those seven days in Hodgson's company, picking up all the tricks of the trade.

He said: "I remember that I had my pro-licence and Roy was the manager of Udinese. I had to do a week at a foreign club and I had my week with him.

"He was really good. He took me in and took me out for dinner, him and his wife, on a couple of nights.

"I was in training at Udinese with the gear on every day. I went to the game with Roy, too. He made me feel really at home.

"I watched him coaching and watched the way he worked with the team. It was a really successful study visit to Italy."
