Biography

Roy Hodgson was appointed England Manager on 1st May 2012. He resigned in 2016 after the European Championships.

Roy began his 36-year career as a manager with Swedish club Halmstad in 1976. Roy had three years in charge of Switzerland, guiding them to the last 16 of the 1994 World Cup in the USA and taking them to UEFA Euro ’96, though he had left before the Finals. The Swiss hadn’t qualified for a major tournament since the 1960s before his time in charge. Roy then spent a year with Finland, lifting them to their highest FIFA ranking, and two years with the United Arab Emirates.

At club level Roy has managed top clubs like Internazionale and Udinese, Blackburn Rovers, Malmo, FC Copenhagen and Grasshopper. After his spell with the Finnish national side Roy became an English Premier League manager with Fulham in 2007. Roy took the Cottagers to the UEFA Europa League Final in 2010, emulating his achievement of leading Inter to the UEFA Cup Final of 1997. In the same year the League Managers’ Association chose him as their ‘Manager of the Year’. Roy took over at Liverpool in June 2010 but had switched to West Bromwich Albion by February 2011, leading them to a mid-table finish in the Barclay’s Premier League in 2012.

Roy speaks several languages and has served on FIFA and UEFA technical study groups.
