I’m sure this has been reported elsewhere, but the Daily Express has run a story suggesting that Roy Hodgson could be a little bit richer should he guide Fulham into Europe season.

Hodgson will pick up a bonus package worth about £750,000 for both league position and European qualification.

Fulham are already considering handing him a new, improved deal but this bonus will kick in anyway at the end of this season if he is successful.

They also quote Hodgson dismissing the suggestion that he’s not that keen on the Europa League.

Of course we want it. We’d have to sit down in the summer and see what we would have to do and make the plans, but it is there for us.
