Newly appointed England boss Roy Hodgson knows that time is of the essence when it comes to determining which players to take to Euro 2012 this summer. However, the selection nightmare doesn’t end there – with the current West Brom boss still needing to appoint his back-room staff.
Hodgson is reportedly looking to bring in two new coaches for the Euro’s, with current Fulham coach Roy Lewington and former Manchester United captain Paul Ince set to be named in the near future.
The new England boss worked with Lewington during his time as Fulham coach, where he helped Fulham to a Europa League final back in 2009.
And former England captain Paul Ince is no stranger to Hodgson, with the England boss managing the former player at Italian side Inter Milan. Ince has has been out of work since leaving Notts County over a year ago and would likely relish the opportunity to work with the man who changed his fortunes round while in Italy.
Current England coach Stuart Pierce has been in temporary charge following Capello’s resignation and is expected to retain a prominent role in the England frame under Hodgson. However, it is yet to be decided on what role exactly Pierce will be taking up.
Ince was famous for his tenacity in midfield paired with a fine passing game and has gone on to manage the likes of Notts County, Macclesfield, MK Dons and Blackburn.
