Roy Hodgson named as new West Brom manager

WEST Brom have appointed former Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson as their new head coach.

The 63-year-old, who parted company with the Reds in January after only six months in charge, succeeds Roberto di Matteo at the Hawthorns.

Di Matteo was relieved of his duties and placed on gardening leave following Saturday’s 3-0 loss at Manchester City.

Caretaker head coach Michael Appleton will remain in temporary charge for the visit of West Ham on Saturday.
