"Let's Not Take The P*** Here!"- Roy Hodgson Is Responsible For One Of The Greatest Post-Match Interviews Ever

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson walked out at Selhurst Park to a guard of honour ahead of their Premier League clash against Arsenal.

It was an emotional moment for the 73-year-old, who announced earlier this week that he will step down as the club's manager at the end of the season.

After spells at Inter Milan, Liverpool, Fulham and West Brom, to name just a few, the experienced Hodgson will likely step down from management after this weekend's finale against his former side at Anfield.


He has achieved a great deal in that time, including a four-year spell in charge of the England national team, and many will remember him for his cool, calm and collected nature in the dugout.

But on one rare occasion, after West Brom secured a 2-1 win against Bolton in 2011, Hodgson completely lost his cool when a reporter questioned a decision he was talking about.

In the below clip, Hodgson says his West Brom side were "rocked back" by a penalty decision he found hard to accept.


The reporter then asks which decision he meant and well, the interview takes a turn for the worse.

The incident in question involved former Arsenal player Jerome Thomas, who fouled Fabrice Muamba in the penalty box before Ivan Klasnic fired in from the spot to equalise.

Hodgson follows up his confrontation with the reporter by saying: "There wasn't a f***ing penalty in the whole game. There wasn't one of those ridiculous situations in the game.


"That didn't happen so let's just talk about our performance."

The interview for Match of the Day is awkwardly restarted as a clearly frustrated Hodgson begrudgingly answers a number of questions before storming off.

Never forget.
