Liverpool skipper Gerrard says Hodgson right man for England

Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard insists Roy Hodgson is the right man for England.

He spent six months playing under Hodgson at Liverpool, but says the former Switzerland and Finland coach shouldn't be judged on his ill-fated spell at Anfield.

"I think people have looked at the big picture with Roy and to judge him on his time at Liverpool would be stupid," he said. "He was very unlucky because of the timing. To go to a club when a lot of the supporters wanted a different man in, you're off on the wrong foot from day one.

I witnessed him first hand and I can assure everyone he's a fantastic manager. He's a very good tactician and if everyone gets behind him, Roy can make a success of it."
