Roy Hodgson seeks new job

Former England manager Roy Hodgson said he is not finished with football and is available for a role either at club or national level.

"I'd like to come back. I feel as good as I have ever done. Age has never been a factor. I feel fit," he told Sky Sports News HQ in his first television interview since quitting as England boss after Euro 2016.

"I think you become a better coach. If wisdom is a word which is at all relevant in football — I would like to think it is — you do become a bit wiser with the years."

"You perhaps make a few less mistakes dealing with players than you would have made when you were young; thought you knew it all and thought that you were invincible."

He said he was open to offers and was in no rush.

"I just have to wait and see what comes along. I've not been in any particular rush, I must say. I've never had a long spell out of the game, it's always been a month or two and then back in again and sometimes not even that."

The 69-year old's previous club gig was with West Bromwich Albion, guiding them to a top-half finish in the Premier League in his one full season in charge before joining England in 2012.
