Hoddle 50-50 on coaching return

Former Saints boss Glenn Hoddle

Former Saints boss Glenn Hoddle

First published in Sport

Former Saints manager Glenn Hoddle is considering a return to football coaching with QPR, but it is understood any role would likely be on a part-time basis as the former England manager juggles numerous other commitments.

Rangers boss Harry Redknapp is interested in adding Hoddle to his support staff and the former Chelsea, Tottenham, Southampton and Wolves boss is considering whether to accept the offer.

The possibility of returning to the Premier League appeals to Hoddle - considered last December as successor to Andre Villas-Boas at Tottenham only for Tim Sherwood to be appointed instead - as a route to returning to the game.

However, Hoddle also has to manage his television commitments with Sky, among others.

A source close to Hoddle told Press Association Sport: ''It's 50-50 as to whether he'll come back with QPR. He's thinking about it.

''If he does come back it's very likely it would be on a part-time basis.''

Redknapp has been looking to add to his coaching staff since Steve McClaren, another former England boss, left to become boss of Derby last season.

Same opinion as you Reed. I read, but hardly comment during the Summer which I consider to be the hearsay season. While most are asleep at the moment, it is late evenng here. My Echo page is full of Canadian ads, so some sponsors are beng ripped off.

Active Saints fan since my Dad took me to my first game in 1957.

I don't think much of Glen Hoddle - but there is apparently a new Napoleon BBQ Outlet Store opening today in Ajax, Ontaro, according to the Echo. Trouble is it's 300 miles from here. Maybe Confuscious could use his connections with Mrs Wilson to get me a travel discount.

On a less relevant subject - how did Schneiderlin do in training tody?
