Roy Hodgson: it's too late for Sam Allardyce apology over 'Woy' jibe

Roy Hodgson: it's too late for Sam Allardyce apology over 'Woy' jibe”

Crystal Palace travel to Everton on Saturday when Hodgson will come face-to-face with the 63-year-old for the first time since Allardyce was caught on camera mocking his speech impediment.

As part of an undercover sting that would ultimately cost him his England job after just one game in charge, Allardyce was filmed referring to Hodgson as "Woy". Do you like being insulted? I didn't lose any sleep over it.

"I think whoever is at the club, the manager and the other people, will eventually make that call".

When pressed on whether Allardyce should apologise at Goodison Park on Saturday, he responded: "No". It has gone. It belongs to the distant past.

"I'm not interested. I've said what I've got to say".

Allardyce will come face to face with Hodgson when his Everton side host Crystal Palace tomorrow with the wounds caused by the clip of the mockery in September 2016 apparently now beyond fix.

"Rhino" took temporary charge of first-team affairs in October after the sacking of Ronald Koeman and stated his desire to secure the job on a full-time basis, only for a awful run as caretaker that saw Everton win only two of eight matches to scupper those hopes.

"He's got a great position at the club at the moment and that's a very hard decision for him to give up - I'm sure about that because Everton U23s is a very privileged position and he's done very well in it".

"If you are going to do something like that I prefer to be private. Hopefully he is fine with it".
