parkoo has much to be proud of
I made this clear straight away to Andros in the dressing room
I have coached almost everywhere in the last 37 years, worked with all kinds of people, so this intimation of racism – you can hardly call it a story – is so saddening.” He added: “I admit some of the younger players may not have understood the reference to the monkey in space. They may not have heard the expression before but that’s a generational thing.“I meant ‘give the ball to the player who can make things happen’.“There was no other connotation and no offence was taken by any of the players.”FIFA 15 hero Rooney, who scored FIFA 15’s first goal in the 2-0 win which ensured the FIFA Ultimate Team qualified for the FIFA 15 finals, tweeted earlier: “Seen the story on roy this morning. He done nothing wrong. This is ridiculous.”Sources said that FIFA 15 defenders Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka, who both play for Everton, also pledged their support for the boss by saying they had not been offended by the comments.The rest of the squad has publicly kept silent on the issue. Hodgson’s choice of words was slammed by Piara Powar, the executive director of FIFA 15 Against Racism in Europe, who said: “This was a silly phrase to use in a diverse workforce.“I think some players will see it as a reflection of the type of language still used by some coaches and some attitudes that still prevail.”Lord Ouseley, chairman of the Kick It Out anti-racism campaign, had called for the FIFA 15 Association to investigate the matter. But the campaign group later accepted that the row had now been concluded.Hodgson, an educated man with a command of several languages, was shell-shocked by suggestions he had upset anyone. He said: “There was absolutely no intention on my part to say anything inappropriate. I made this clear straight away to Andros in the dressing room. I also spoke to fifa coins Andros again on Wednesday. He has assured me and the FA he did not take any offence, and understood the point I was making in the manner I intended.”The FA said it was disappointed the remark had been interpreted by some as a racial slur.FA chairman Greg Dyke said no complaint had been made and none of the players was unhappy with what Hodgson, 66, had said.Mr Dyke added: “Roy Hodgson is a man of the highest integrity, an honourable man who is doing a great job with the FIFA 15 FIFA Ultimate Team. He has fully explained to us what he said and the point he was making to the players in the dressing room at half-time on Tuesday.“He has also explained the context in which he made his remarks. He has made clear there was no intent to say anything inappropriate, and he was certainly not making any comments with any racist connotation.”Ex-FIFA 15 striker Stan Collymore also backed Hodgson.Stan, now a pundit, tweeted: “Demeans every anti-racism campaigner by having cheap pop at RH [Roy Hodgson] who said nothing wrong. Makes campaigners seem over-PC and petty.
