Hodgson wants to see out England contract

Monday, March 10, 2014 by YAHOO Sport

England manager Roy Hodgson is eager to see out the remainder of his four-year contract.

Hodgson was appointed national team coach in May 2012 following the departure of Fabio Capello and led England to the quarterfinals of that year's European Championships, where his side lost on penalties to Italy.

The former Liverpool and Fulham boss will take his squad to the upcoming World Cup and has indicated he would like to stay on in his role for Euro 2016 - regardless of England's performance in Brazil.

"I signed a four-year contract, and I've always been working myself towards that four-year contract," Hodgson said. "Whether contracts mean four years when you sign them or not, that's not anything to do with me. That would be other people's decisions.

"I shall be working hard to fulfil the contract and hope that the FA will fulfil their side of it and another one after that? Who knows?"

England continued its preparations for the World Cup - where it faces a tough group that contains Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica - with a 1-0 friendly win over Denmark at Wembley last week.
