West Bromwich Albion manager Roy Hodgson is angry that he was sacked so early on in his Liverpool career. Hodgson had a poor six months in charge at Liverpool before being relieved of his duties in January.

The 63-year-old’s Anfield failure has been followed by a successful second half of the season where he has guided West Brom to Premier League safety.

“I would like to have thought that people wouldn’t have made judgments on good and bad in the space of months,” he said on Friday.

“I always remain positive. I think that in a career that has been as long as mine I’m very satisfied with it myself and I don’t follow the headlines.”

“If there are headlines suggesting I’m not very good or headlines that I am very good, I take it all with the same pinch of salt.”

“It’s a sad indictment of a 36-year career that after one period which is less than successful, people are making judgments about your ability.”

“It makes it a pretty sad world for us people and professionals working in it.”
