Roy Hodgson: Wenger Could Lose 50 Matches In A Row And Would Still Have My Respect

Roy Hodgson said under-fire Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger could lose his next 50 games as a manager and it would not adversely affect his high opinion of him.
 "I think there are managers like Arsene who deserve the utmost respect because of what he's done in the game of football, not least here in England," said Hodgson.

"He's a record-breaker in almost every category and basically the only person in my era who could really hold his hand up and say 'this guy and I are in the same category' is Alex Ferguson.

 "He's been criticised many times in the past but he could lose the next 50 games he ever plays and it certainly wouldn't change one bit my respect for him as a manager, my respect for him as a person and in particular my respect for the job he's done at Arsenal, which is something quite outstanding.

"It's easy for me to empathise or say good things about a guy like Arsene Wenger because I can't really understand what there is to say that is not good about him."
