Hodgson - No Inter contact

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson insists he has not been contacted about the chance to coach Inter Milan again.

But no Nerazzurri approach yet for Fulham boss

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson insists he has not been contacted about the chance to coach Inter Milan again, but would not rule out a return to the Giuseppe Meazza. The Italian and European champions are on the look-out for a new coach after Jose Mourinho's departure for Real Madrid, with England boss Fabio Capello and Liverpool's Rafa Benitez thought to be among their targets. Hodgson has also been linked with a return after coaching Inter from 1995 to 1997, leading them to the Uefa Cup final, before having a second stint as caretaker in 1999. The much-travelled 62-year-old remains on their radar having transformed Fulham from Premier League strugglers into European qualifiers before steering them to this season's Europa League final. But Hodgson insists there has been no contact yet from Inter and that he is in the dark over who will be the Nerazzurri's new boss. "I don't know who could be the coach," he told Sky Sport Italia. "I saw an interview where Capello said he wanted to stay with England, but in that type of situation it is impossible to know where the truth lies.

Speculation

"There has been so much speculation on Benitez's future. The last thing I heard was that he wanted to stay at Liverpool, as he still has a four-year contract. "I haven't spoken to anyone or heard anything from Inter," Hodgson added. "There is the same type of speculation around my name as you get with Capello and Benitez." And asked if he would be ready to accept another call from club president Massimo Moratti, Hodgson did not rule out considering such an offer. "I have a contract with Fulham," he said. "The day I receive a call from someone, then that is the moment I'll think about these things. For the moment I'm not thinking about them."
