Gerrard and Carragher back Hodgson

Liverpool duo Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher give their backing to Roy Hodgson after he was confirmed as the new England manager.

Gerrard says he thinks Hodgson took the Liverpool job at "the wrong time" but feels the 64-year old is "a great appointment" for England and says he is looking forward to working with him again.

Carragher says he is "pleased" that Hodgson has got another chance in a high-profile job after his ill-fated spell at Anfield.
