England boss Hodgson welcomes league overhaul

England manager Roy Hodgson has backed FA chairman Greg Dyke's plan to change the structure of English football by introducing B teams and a new division between the Conference and League Two.

I welcome the proposals and I know that the chairman - and indeed everyone who is passionate about English football - would strongly advocate the findings and recommendations.

We all have a responsibility when called to answer the question, 'how can we provide a better platform for the young England players of the future?'

– Roy Hodgson
