Manager Profile

Time at Club:





Roy Hodgson, 72, is the oldest manager in Premier League history. The former England manager has been in charge of Crystal Palace since 2017, his first top-flight job since he oversaw West Brom between 2011 and 2012.

Hodgson has achieved a great deal in what has been a lengthy management career across a varied range of clubs and competitions. The veteran gaffer has managed teams in England, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway and Denmark, and has also been in charge of the Switzerland, UAE and Finland national teams.

One of Hodgson's most successful periods was as Manager of Swedish side Malmo where he won five consecutive League Titles between 1985 and 1990, plus two domestic cups to boot during that period. Hodgson also had an excellent spell as Switzerland Manager where he masterminded qualification for the 1994 World Cup.

From 2007 to 2012 Hodgson was stationed in the Premier League, managing Fulham, Liverpool and then West Brom. At Fulham Hodgson did exceptionally well, guiding the club to 7th in the Premier League in 2008/09 and then remarkably to the Europa League Final the following season where they lost to Athletico Madrid. He also earned himself the LMA Manager of the year award for his efforts. Hodgson's exploits got him the job as Liverpool manager but he endured a torrid time at the club and lasted only 6 months.

In February 2011 Hodgson was appointed West Brom manager - a position he held for 15 months.

Roy Hodgson Quotes

Don't give me that one. Two shots on target? What about all the ones they threw themselves in front of? Don't hit me with statistics.

Unbelievable. What do you mean by that? In 35 years, how many clubs have I had? What do you mean do my methods translate? They have translated from Halmstads to Malmo, to Orebo to Neuchatel Xamax, to the Swiss national team, so I find the question insulting. To suggest that because I have moved from one club to another, that the methods which have stood me in good stead for 35 years and made me one of the most respected coaches in Europe don't suddenly work is very hard to believe.

I swear all the time. I swear in front of my wife - I never used to when I was a kid but I do now, so there you go. It's 2014. People swear - and I swear.
