Roy Hodgson who made a triumphant return to English football with Fulham after outstanding success in Netherlands has just got the sack at Liverpool as he failed to work his magic there after 20 games.
Hodgson, 63, won only seven of 20 Premier League games after taking over from Rafael Benitez in July 2010 and led the club to 12th in the table.
Former player and manager Kenny Dalglish has been placed in charge until the end of the season.
“Both parties thought it in the best interests of the club that he stand down,” said American owner John W Henry in a statement on the club’s website.

For the next few months I will be watching any signs of crack in the Romanian government, the first hint of crack may confirm that the spell Romanian witches plan to place on their government is beginning to take hold.
For the first time Witches and astrologers in Romania are to start paying income tax of about 16% on their earning as they are now classified as self employed.
Witches are planning to gather on Romania’s southern plains and the banks of the Danube to protest against the laws and place a curse on the politicians who voted for the new laws.
Among the vital ingredients of some of the curses that will be raining on Romanian politician and their president in particular includes cat excrement, dead dogs.
If their spell or curse should work on their government, I will definitely be seeking their services to place curses on a number of unpleasant people I don’t quite know how to deal with at present.
After a long talk with Ronaldinho’s manager, Venky’s representative has offered a deal of about £20 million for three years of playing. According to Venky’s Anuradha Desai, the 30-year-old football player is really keen to play in English Premier League and that is exactly what Rovers are placing their bets on. Moreover, it seems that not only Ronaldinho is under Blackburn’s radar but also the 35-year-old player of Los Angeles Galaxy, David Beckham.
Not only Blackburn is interested in Beckham but also Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United as well. As well, Ronaldinho is wanted by Brazilian clubs Palmeiras, Gremio and Flamengo but it seems that the offer placed by Blackburn is very tempting for AC Milan leaders and also for the player, in terms of wages and possibility to play in English Premier League.
Ronaldinho left Barcelona in 2008 for AC Milan but quickly lost his place in the first 11 when Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robinho signed with the club last summer. The offer for the 30-year-old player is, according to Desai, as following: £6.5 million for the first year and £7.2 million for the second and third year, leading to a total of £20.9 million for a three-years contract.
Blackburn’s manager Steve Kean stated that he does not know how far the discussions between Indian owners and Ronaldinho’s representative have reached however he would be more than happy to train a twice World Player of the Year that could really add the spark needed by Rover football team. The rumours about acquisitions do not end up here while Desai also added that she is looking for other players as well, one of them would be the former Blackburn’s player Damien Duff.
