'Impossible job' for Roy Hodgson

The Football Association want England to go into Euro 2012 next month with Roy Hodgson as manager, rather than Spurs manager Harry Redknapp, who was seen as the favourite for the job.

Former FA chief Mark Palios told the Today programme that the FA had not taken the decision for the sake of it being brave.

"They want to take a decision because it is the right decision," he said.

Henry Winter, football correspondent of the Daily Telegraph, said that Roy Hodgson had a great deal of international experience, but raised concerns that he was "a broadsheet man in a tabloid world".

England are at best a quarter-final team, he said, and whoever is in charge, "it is the impossible job".
