West Bromwich Albion
Pressing and screening – Issue 12 (July 2011)
The West Bromwich Albion management team consists of Roy Hodgson, Michael Appleton and Keith Downing.
Hodgson took charge of the Baggies in February 2011, leading the club to an 11th-placed finish in the Barclays Premier League.
The 63-year-old had started the season at Liverpool, having been drawn to Merseyside off the back of considerable success at Fulham in the preceding three years.
In total, Hodgson has led teams in seven different countries, including notable spells at Inter Milan and with the Swiss national team, whom he guided to the 1994 World Cup and Euro ‘96.
In England, he has also managed Blackburn Rovers, and for the 2009/10 campaign, was named as the LMA Manager of the Year after guiding Fulham to the Europa League final.
As a player, Hodgson began with Crystal Palace having been born locally in Croydon. He turned out for a number of non-league sides before taking the step into management. And at the age of just 29, he won the first of two Swedish championships with Halmstads BK in 1976.
He acts as a regular adviser on technical matters for both FIFA and UEFA.
