Hodgson vows to stay at Fulham

Roy Hodgson dismissed speculation linking him with Liverpool after watching his side beat struggling London rivals West Ham 3-2 at Craven Cottage.
Hodgson's achievement in taking Fulham to the final of the Europa League, where they will face Atletico Madrid later this month, has been the catalyst for speculation that he could replace Rafael Benitez on Merseyside.
"I am happy here at Fulham. I have got a contract here at Fulham. I am happy with the job I am doing," said Hodgson.
"My name is sufficiently strong at the moment to be linked with other jobs and, of course, that is flattering and it is nice to hear.
"But as far as I am concerned it is speculation because I am at Fulham.
"We all prefer praise to criticism and love to hatred. It would be ludicrous to suggest I am not enjoying people saying and writing nice things about me and the team.
"But I am trying to keep a level head and keep things in perspective."
West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola refused to talk about speculation over his future at the club.
Zola insists he is not affected by suggestions that he could be ousted as manager over the summer.
"It does not affect me," Zola said. "It has been like that since I've been at the club. I have learned how to take it."
