Everton boss Allardyce: I'll talk to Hodgson

Everton boss Sam Allardyce is eager to end his feud with Crystal Palace rival Roy Hodgson.

The two ex-England managers cross swords at Goodison Park on Saturday for the first time since an undercover sting forced Big Sam to resign as Three Lions boss in September 2016 after one game against Slovakia.

Hodgson claims Allardyce still hasn't said sorry for mocking his speech impediment — and insists it is too late for him to bother doing so now.

Allardyce hopes to bury the hatchet when the pair meet on Merseyside – in person rather than over the phone.

“I never apologised personally because I never got hold of him, but went out and did it publicly," he said. “I'll hopefully speak to him and see him at the game. A lot of time has passed since that unfortunate situation I was in."
