Hodgson Race Row

October 17, 2013 by  

Hodgson Race Row, Roy Hodgson was forced to issue an apology last night after becoming embroiled in a bizarre row over a joke he reportedly made about a space monkey and England winger Andros Townsend.

It is understood that Hodgson told the joke at half-time of England’s 2-0 win against Poland, with the intention of encouraging right-back Chris Smalling to play the ball more frequently to Townsend.

It has been reported that at least one player was shocked by the remark because he thought it could be perceived to carry racist connotations.

Hodgson, it is understood, has been mortified by that interpretation and regards it as a big misunderstanding. The England manager issued a statement last night to apologise for any offence that had been caused.
