No team could thrash me, claims England manager…

England manager Roy Hodgson has likely wound up Manchester United fans with his latest comments about their side…
The 66-year-old has gone on record claiming that he could organise any defence in the world to not concede six goals against the Red Devils, regardless of the players he’s in charge of!
“You can organise a pub team not to let in six goals against Manchester United,” he told World Soccer magazine.
“Give me six months and I’d organise them, if they had a half-decent goalkeeper and a couple of centre halves who can get in the way of the ball.”
The likes of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie, two of the best forwards on the planet, might have something to say about this.
To be fair, the comments are actually not really about United, but more about Hodgson’s own ability to organise a defensive unit . Still, it probably isn’t the wisest thing he’s ever said, especially if Italy take a very early lead against England on June 14!
