Hodgson close to Reds deal


England’s World Cup crisis could be thrown further into chaos by the imminent appointment of Roy Hodgson as Liverpool manager.
Hodgson would be the hot favourite to succeed Fabio Capello if the Football Association part company with the Italian after England’s crushing exit here in South Africa. But Liverpool are hopeful of snapping up the highly regarded 62-year-old Fulham manager before the end of the week. —Reuters
