WATFORD, England (AP) — Roy Hodgson has equated his return to Premier League management to a sailor receiving a “siren call from the mermaid.”
The 74-year-old former England coach was hired by Watford last week and will look to steer the team out of relegation danger, like he has done in previous rescue acts at Crystal Palace, Fulham and West Bromwich Albion.
Roy Hodgson is back in the Premier League at the age of 74.
The former England coach was hired by Watford on Tuesday and will be tasked with keeping the team in the top division following its descent into the relegation zone.
Patrick Vieira was never a player to shirk a challenge. His eight career red cards in the English Premier League as the enforcer in Arsenal’s midfield is testament to that.
