Former England boss Hodgson recruited by Melbourne City for first job since Three Lions

Date Posted,April 5, 2017

Former England boss Roy Hodgson has been recruited by A-League club Melbourne City in an advisory role – in his first job since quiting the Three Lions.

The 69-year-old has been seconded to Australia – but it is understood he is NOT under consideration for a coaching role, according to the Birmingham Mail.

The Australian side are currently under the stewardship of caretaker coach Michael Valkanis following John van ‘t Schip’s departure.

But club bosses reportedly want the former West Brom manager to spend time with the coaching set-up, sharing his experience and acumen.

A keen friendship with club executive Brian Marwood has reportedly led to the move.

Coach Valkanis said on Thursday: “That’s why it’s so good being a part of this group, the City Football Group.

“It’s great when you get football people together.

“A 10-minute conversation [today] ended up being one hour.

“We’re so lucky to have him here … he’s a man with a wealth of experience that can help.”
