Fulham boss Hodgson has 'nothing to prove'

New Fulham manager Roy Hodgson insists he has nothing to prove to English football fans.

The 60-year-old's only previous job in the top flight ended with him leaving Blackburn by mutual consent with Rovers bottom of the table in November 1998.

But now, charged with keeping the free-falling Cottagers in the Premier League following the sacking of Lawrie Sanchez, Hodgson is adamant he is under no extra pressure given that past failure.

Asked if he had to prove his credentials in England, he replied: 'No. Why should I need to prove myself more here than if I took a job in Germany or Russia or Greece. You always need to prove yourself.'

Hodgson also insisted he was ready for the rigours of life in the Premier League after a nine-year absence - in which time the former Switzerland coach has taken charge of the likes of FC Copenhagen, Udinese, United Arab Emirates and, most recently, Finland.

'I'm fully prepared. It may be 10 years since I worked in the Premier League but I haven't been working at a low level where there is no pressure. Quite the opposite,' he added.

'I'm in a similar situation to the foreign coaches who come in.'

Hodgson always remained confident he would get another chance in his homeland.

'When I was at FC Copenhagen (from 2000-01) I knew I was being strongly linked with England, so there was no reason to believe a job in the Premier League would not be a possibility.'
