Man Utd legend Neville backing West Brom's Hodgson for England

Manchester United legend Gary Neville says West Bromwich Albion manager Roy Hodgson deserves to be considered for the England job.

Neville wrote in the Mail on Sunday: "Those who say he failed to deal with the pressure of managing Liverpool are missing the fact that he came into an enormously difficult situation, with the club ownership in crisis, didn’t have £110million to spend and then saw the owners and executives change halfway through the season. Before the start of the 2010-11 season, Harry Redknapp and Hodgson would have been considered equal favourites for the England job.

"If Redknapp does not turn out to be the new England manager, either because he chooses to stay at Tottenham or because negotiations break down, the FA could do worse than look at Hodgson."
