Fulham hero Hayles backs Hodgson appointment

Fulham hero Barry Hayles is backing Roy Hodgson for success at Craven Cottage.

Hayles, who scored 57 goals in his time in west London, said: "He is a very good coach who has got all the badges and has been around the world building up a very impressive CV.

"Roy didn't have a great time at Blackburn, but he's managed clubs like Inter Milan.

"He'll have a significant impact, especially on the foreign players, who might understand him more than someone like Lawrie Sanchez."
