Roy Hodgson joins Man City partners Melbourne City

Former Liverpool and West Brom boss Roy Hodgson is taking a role with Melbourne City.

City are without a permanent head-coach but Hodgson, 69, is not under consideration to take over.

Instead, the ex-Inter Milan, Liverpool and West Brom boss will work with the club's coaches and share his experience.

Brian Marwood, City Football Group executive, said: “That's why it's so good being a part of this group, the City Football Group.

"It's great when you get football people together. A ten-minute conversation [today] ended up being one hour. We're so lucky to have him here . . . he's a man with a wealth of experience that can help."

Hodgson is expected to stay at the club, which shares the same owners as Manchester City and New York City, for a month, says The Sun.

He will watch Friday's match against Adelaide United from the stands.
