Roy Hodgson has confirmed that his assistance Gary Neville and Ray Lewington will also step down from their respective positions in charge of the England national team with immediate effect.
They follow in the footsteps of Hodgson, who announced his resignation as the head coach of the England national team with immediate effect. The former Liverpool manager announced his exit from the national team after a very poor Euro 2016. England were hoping to at least reach the quarter-finals of the competition and it would have kept Hodgson in the job.
However, they suffered yet another humiliation at a major tournament but this time at the hands of minnows Iceland, who engineered a spectacular 2-1 victory in the round of last 16. Hodgson has now been in charge of the national team for the last three major international tournaments. Only the Euro 2012 offers some joy for the manager in terms of his CV. Gary Neville recently received the sack from his full-time managerial position at Valencia after having lasted less than six months at the club. He has now exited the national team with immediate effect and his next move still remains unclear.
The former Manchester United right back learn from one of the best in the business, but he has struggled to apply at the start of his managerial career.”Ray and Gary have asked me to speak on their behalf.They came with me as part of my coaching team and they will leave with me. I would like to thank all the supporters, staff, the FA and the fans.It has been a fantastic journey and one that I will look back on the four years with pride. I want to thank the media for the support you have given me,” said Hodgson after announcing his resignation.
