Appointment 'not based on cost'
- From the section Football
Football Association chairman David Bernstein says "financial considerations did not drive" the board's thinking during their quest to appoint a new England manager.
Roy Hodgson, whose contract with West Brom was nearing an end, has signed a four-year deal to be the new national team boss.
Bernstein adds that the selection process was not a two-horse race between Hodgson and Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp, insisting there were a number of names on the shortlist.
