The England boss hailed Gary Cahill
England manager Roy Hodgson has backed Gary Cahill for a bright future in the national side.
The former West Brom boss his hopeful that the Chelsea defender can form a centre-half partnership with John Terry at Chelsea, which could benefit the Three Lions.
“Gary Cahill is a lot younger, he’s got a good future ahead of him and if he can bed in to the Chelsea team alongside John Terry, it’ll help the partnership if they find themselves together with England,” Hodgson said.
“Having picked the England team, we’ll have to see if they find themselves together or not.”
Hodgson also met his predecessor Fabio Capello last night at the Champions League final, which Chelsea won on penalties against Bayern Munich.
“Fabio and I have been friends for a long time,” Hodgson added. “We’ve known each other for a long time, we’ve worked together in Italy - or worked against each other in Italy - so it’s always nice to meet him again.
“And of course it’s very interesting to meet him at the moment and to hear some of his opinions. He’s been very helpful, very forthright and very generous with his time.”
