The new Liverpool coach Roy Hodgson is looking forward to getting his team back into the top four, and thinks it will be a lot easier than the time of his his previous appointment, when he only had five games to save Fulham from relegation.
He was asked if he thought it was impossible to get Liverpool back to their previous heights, and he answered confidently: “Impossible job? No, the impossible job was when I took over at Craven Cottage in December 2007.
“Everyone thought no one in their right mind should take that job – Fulham were virtually relegated when I took over.
“They had four matches coming up – Liverpool, Man U, Arsenal and West Ham away – not many points to get out of those!
“It would leave you about nine or 10 games to peg back a deficit of 11 or 12 points.
“If ever there was a job you could say you are not in the right mind to take on it was that one.”
“There’s no comparision with the job I am taking on here which could have enormous prospects.
“We might find new owners coming in willing to back the club the right way, making funds available, giving us a chance to get the right players, it could be fantastic.
“But it won’t be less impossible than the Fulham situation!”
That remains to be seen Roy!
