Hodgson’s advisory role at Melbourne City

Former England and Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has commenced a mentoring role with the City Football Group and will spend the rest of the season at Hyundai A-League club Melbourne City.

“It’s fantastic, that’s why it’s so good being part of this [City Group],” City boss Michael Valkanis said after Hodgson watched the club’s training session at Bundoora on Thursday.

“It’s great when you get football people together…what should have been a 10-minute conversation turned into an hour…so many stories.

“He’s [Hodgson] here as a consultant to help us coaches. We’re able to ask him whatever we require. He’s got lots of football stories and football knowledge.

“We’re so lucky to have him here, he’s got a wealth of experience.”
