Roy Hodgson has recently talked about the possibility of luring John Terry into the English national football team as the head manager wants to reinforce the defensive section of the national squad and he is viewing the already retired John Terry as a possible option.
“There are, in my opinion, no left-sided centre-backs who are English playing in the league who are at least at the level of the ones we are choosing and that’s a fact of life and there’s not much we can do about it’’
“The point that we haven’t got the left-sided one is quite right, but there is nothing I can do about that unless suddenly in the next five weeks some brilliant English left-sided centre-back appears on the scene and I don’t anticipate that. I had a long chat with John the other day; he’s a very nice guy. But because he retired so long ago, he retired four years ago. He doesn’t feature in my thinking too often.But I can’t deny that is a valid point.’’ England’s Roy Hodgson said.
Hodgson believes that his team conceded too many goals during England’s latest friendly matches against Germany and Netherlands. One of the main tasks that Hodgson wants to accomplish is to reinforce the defensive department of the English national football team and he was even thinking about luring John Terry back to the national squad.
Out of the 2 friendly matches that England recently played against Germany and Netherlands, the team of Roy Hodgson conceded a total of 5 goals which is a fairly high amount of goals and this high amount of goals is the main reason of why Hodgson is starting to feel concerned about what to do in relation to the defensive section of his squad and he needs to find a solution before the 2016 Euro’s kick off on June.
