The award is the highest recognition given to a manager (Head Coach) each season and is voted on by all the managers from within the English professional system. The majority of votes from the other premiership and football league managers went to Hodgson for guiding his team to the final of the Europa Cup. Fulham F.C narrowly lost 2-1 to extra time goal, three minutes before the end of the game, against Athletico Madrid in the final in Hamburg (Germany) on Wednesday May 12th. Club Director Gary Wright, along with a delegation from the CGSA board visited Fulham F.C in the spring season to look at the whole structure of Fulham F.C and their Academy program. During this visit the CGSA group spent time Roy Hodgson to discuss the structure at the club and soccer in general. CGSA will now hope to continue this relationship with Hodgson as he coaches one of the biggest club teams in the world.
