Liverpool win holds no extra weight for football manager Hodgson

4th April 2011 - Chad Lazarus

West Bromwich Albion football manager Roy Hodgson claims he got no extra satisfaction from beating his former club Liverpool on Saturday (April 2nd).

Hodgson lasted just 191 days as Liverpool football manager, before being sacked and replaced by Reds' legend Kenny Dalglish in January.

However, Hodgson got the better of his Liverpool counterpart yesterday, securing a 2-1 victory for his relegation-threatened side.

Yet the former Fulham boss said the game had no extra meaning because it was Liverpool.

He explained: "I don't take any particular pleasure in that victory.

"The great pleasure I take is beating Liverpool because it is not something West Brom do very often."

West Brom moved four points clear of the Premier League relegation zone with the victory, while Dalgish was left to bemoan Liverpool's injury problems.

Daniel Agger and Glen Johnson both had to leave the field with injuries, while captain Steven Gerrard had to miss the game with a groin strain.
