Hodgson: Man Utd's Ferguson close to Inter Milan job

Hodgson has revealed how Fergie turned down the chance to manage the Italian giants before he took the job in 1995.

Soccer nomad Hodgson has had 13 jobs since Fergie took over at Old Trafford in 1986.

Hodgson said: "I remember Alex said he had been approached before I went to Inter.

"I'm pretty sure he could have had that job. In the choice between Hodgson and Ferguson, I don't think there would have been too much doubt where the choice would have landed. And I don't think it would have been Hodgson!

"I don't have any envy or jealousy - just total respect and admiration."
