Sun 15 Nov – Fulham manager Roy Hodgson has stated that he would be happy to sign a new contract with the London club, giving club owner Mohamed Al-Fayed the green light to start contract negotiations in the coming weeks.
Hodgson has been a success at Craven Cottage since joining in December 2007, saving the club from relegation and subsequently qualifying for the Europa Cup in the 2008/2009 season. The club currently sit comfortably in mid-table.
In light of recent interest from a number of national teams, in particular Sweden, the former Inter Coach assured Cottagers fans, saying that “If I could feel they really want to continue along these lines, and they want me to be the man to do it, I don’t have itchy feet at all.”
All eyes will now be on club owner Al-Fayed to tie the manager down to a longer contract and end any further speculation of a move away.
