Hodgson plays down Liverpool link

Roy Hodgson dismissed speculation linking him with Liverpool after watching his side beat West Ham 3-2 at Craven Cottage yesterday.

Roy Hodgson dismissed speculation linking him with Liverpool after watching his side beat West Ham 3-2 at Craven Cottage yesterday. Hodgson's achievement in taking Fulham to the final of the Europa League, where they will face Atletico Madrid later this month, has been the catalyst for speculation that he could replace Rafael Benitez on Merseyside. But the Fulham manager, right, insists, that while it is flattering to be linked with such clubs, he is "happy" at Craven Cottage. "I have got a contract here at Fulham. I am happy with the job I am doing. My name is sufficiently strong at the moment to be linked with other jobs and, of course, that is flattering and it is nice to hear." * Agencies
