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

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

Roy Hodgson is planning to retire from football management once and for all following Watford's final game of the Premier League season against Chelsea on Sunday.

Earlier this month, the 74-year-old confirmed his plans. "I don’t think I shall be putting my name forward anymore for further sorties, if you like, into the world of Premier League football because it’s a very demanding world," he said.

“And I think perhaps now I’ve earned the right to step back, enjoy a bit of free time and spend some time with my wife and son.”

After enjoying spells at Inter Milan, Liverpool, Fulham and West Brom, to name just a few, the experienced Hodgson can look back at his 46 years in management with pride.

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.
