Roy unhappy with media focus
22 Dec 2008 - 10:33:36
Fulham manager Roy Hodgson has voiced his frustration at the media coverage of his side revolving around the uncertain future of midfielder Jimmy Bullard.
The 30-year-old has been linked with a move away from Craven Cottage in the January transfer window, with Hodgson annoyed that his side are not being given enough credit for a seven-match unbeaten run in the Premier League.
He said after the 3-0 win at home to Middlesbrough: "Jimmy has done his bit and I am the first to recognise and thank him for it, but it is wrong to make this a one-man club.
"That would be very demeaning to the other players.
"Also it is quite strange that so much talk is going on about a player who has 18 months of his contract left to run, who missed a year's football through injury and who has been nursed back into this type of form by the club during the year when he couldn't play at all.
"I and the rest of the players can feel a bit aggrieved that all the talk seems to be revolving around one man and that doesn't seem correct."
