Rush full of praise for new boss

Liverpool legend Ian Rush has spoken very highly of newly appointed Reds manager Roy Hodgson, who was unveiled at Anfield yesterday.

Hodgson’s appointment has been met with a mixed reaction from Liverpool fans, but Rush is in doubt that the club have made the right appointment to replace Rafa Benitez.

He said, “I know Roy quite well and its a good appointment.

“When he was manager of Finland I spent some time over there and when I was doing my UEFA Pro badge in Wales he came down to spend two days with us.

“I’ve also met him at various UEFA meetings over the years and I’ve always been really impressed with what he has to say.

“Tactically, he’s very astute, he’s highly respected across Europe and if you look at his CV he’s been everywhere.

“Roy has proved himself at club and international level and has managed big clubs like Inter Milan.

“He was being talked about as the next England manager so its good to see Liverpool move quickly to get him before the FA make any decision about Fabio Capello.”
