Hodgson signs new Fulham deal
Fulham manager Roy Hodgson has signed a new twelve month rolling-deal with the Cottagers.
The former Inter Milan and Switzerland boss has been rewarded for guiding Fulham to seventh place in the Premier League last season - their highest top-flight finish - and for a strong start to the current campaign.
"I'm delighted to have committed my future to Fulham for the years to come,'' Hodgson said. "I have always stated my desire to remain at the club and continue the good work that has been achieved over the past two years.
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank the chairman, the fans and staff at the club for the faith they have shown in me during my time at Fulham.
"I would also like to thank the club's fans for the outstanding support they have shown the team in recent years, both at the Cottage and on our travels in the Premier League and the UEFA Europa League.
"We will of course continue to work tirelessly to ensure that continued success is enjoyed on the pitch in the years to come.''
The Craven Cottage outfit currently sit ninth in the Premier League table -having beaten both Liverpool and champions Manchester United this campaign - and have reached the last-32 of the Europa League, where they will play holders Shakthar Donetsk.
The 62-year-old has previously coached the national teams of Finland and Switzerland, receiving particular acclaim for the job he did with the Swiss after guiding them to the World Cup finals in 1994 and European Championship finals in 1996 - their first major championship appearances for thirty years.
