Hodgson says sorry to Liverpool fans after rant

LONDON – Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has apologised to the club’s supporters after criticising them in an angry outburst following Wednesday’s shock 1-0 defeat against struggling Wolves at Anfield. Hodgson was furious after sections of the Liverpool support showed their displeasure at his reign with a sarcastic chant of “Hodgson for England” before calling for Reds legend Kenny Dalglish to be installed as manager. The former Fulham boss,
who only replaced Rafael Benitez as boss in June, said after the game he had never had the “famous Anfield support” in his six months in charge. That was seen as a clear attack on his critics in the crowd but, with his fans said to be angry at his comments, Hodgson on Friday moved to quell the unrest. “Things have been misinterpreted,” Hodgson said.
“I’m afraid people have taken one small comment where I was describing my situation. “I was responding to a question about how it felt to be jeered by fans, making it clear it hurts me and I was disappointed by it because no-one wants to feel they are unpopular.
“I understand it is up to me to take it on the chin but it’s not been an easy ride for me. “All I can do is apologise and make it perfectly clear there was nothing offensive in my comments.”
