Benitez had said “Some people cannot see a priest on a mountain of sugar. Instead of talking about flips and flops, he has to concentrate on his job, try to do his best and not talk about the level of his players or the new players.”
But Hodgson has attempted to build a bridge, apologising for any offence caused to Benitez, and agreeing that he should be concentrating on his own club.
“I totally agree with him that every manager needs to work with his own club. I have no comments to make about other people’s opinions – I’ll allow them to make them and in this case I’ll accept them if that’s what they want to be.”
