Roy Hodgson provides update on his Crystal Palace contract situation

BY ANDREW MCSTEEN

Roy Hodgson says he has not opened any talks over a Crystal Palace contract extension – and is not worried about that.

Ahead of the season-opener against Fulham back in August, the Eagles chief signed a one-year contact extension, taking him up to the end of the next campaign – 2019/20.

And with all the transfer gossip surrounding players, the Premier League’s oldest manager – who will be 72 before the first game of next season – revealed he has not even considered extending it again.

“I don’t know, I haven’t talked about that yet. It’s not been a matter that we’ve discussed and certainly it’s not something that is high on my agenda,” said Hodgson.

“I’m looking forward to the year to come and then we’ll see what happens,” he added. “I only want to stay at clubs, all the time I feel like I’m welcome there, and that people appreciate the work that’s being done.

“I don’t take on jobs anymore with a view to furthering my career, I take them on to do them and to do them as well as I possibly can, [and] hopefully for the club to appreciate that.

“At the moment, we are totally in tune, the club and I, in that respect so we’ll see.”
