Southampton boss Pochettino welcomes Hodgson praise

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino is delighted with the support the club received this week from England coach Roy Hodgson.

English players were in the Saints starting line-up for victory over Hull City - a home-grown focus praised by Hodgson when he announced the senior squad on Thursday.

Asked if the England boss had thanked him, Pochettino said: "I have not got a chance to see him yet. "There was some traffic before when we were going to see each other so it didn't happen in the end.

"He knows of my admiration for him and I am the one who admires him for his work."
