What he's achieved Fulham is pretty amazing IMO. They were on the verge of relegation a couple of seasons ago.

Here's a couple of bits from wikipedia...

Guided the Swiss national team to the last 16 of the 1994 World Cup and qualification for Euro 1996 when Switzerland had not qualified for a major tournament since the 1960s.

Inter Milan
Before the European Championships, Hodgson joined Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan, where he worked from 1995 to 1997. He presided over a rebuilding phase. Inter had finished 13th and 6th in the seasons prior to his arrival. After a terrible start to the season, Hodgson was brought in and guided the club to a 7th place finish in the 1995–96 season, qualifying for the UEFA Cup. The 1996–97 season saw Inter finish 3rd and reach the 1997 UEFA Cup Final, losing on penalties over two legs. The side Hodgson built would go on to win the UEFA Cup in 1998 and finish runner-up in Serie A under his successor, Luigi Simoni.

And check out the quotes on the UAE section!

Yeah, good appointment I think.

And anyway, he's younger than David Bowie! ; )
