Everton boss Moyes admits Hodgson set him on his way 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."
