Hodgson keen to see out England contract

Roy Hodgson has said he would like to see out the whole of his current contract with the England national side and has hinted he may even want to extend his stay as manager past Euro 2016, Sky Sports has reported.

The FA appointed the 66-year-old in May 2012 to take charge of that year’s European Championships, with his tenure lasting the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and Euro 2016 in France.

Hodgson takes his 23-man squad to Brazil in the summer and there have been suggestions that if England again underperforms on the big stage his stint as manager could be brought to a premature end.

And Hodgson has urged the FA to not make any hasty decisions and honour their commitment to him.

“I signed a four-year contract and I’ve always been working myself towards that four-year contract,” said Hodgson.

“Whether contracts mean four years when you sign them or not, that’s not anything to do with me. That would be other people’s decisions.

“I shall be working hard to fulfil the contract and hope that the FA will fulfil their side of it.

“And another one after that? Who knows?”

England were drawn in a difficult looking World Cup group this summer and will face Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica. The manager is currently in the process of selecting his potential squad to fly to South America.

England won their last friendly 1 – 0 against Denmark on Wednesday, and also face warm up games against Peru, Ecuador and Honduras.
