Former Liverpool coach Roy Hodgson has been appointed head coach of West Brom, the Premier League club confirmed on Friday.

West Brom, who fired Roberto Di Matteo earlier this week, hired Hodgson just over a month after he was sacked by Liverpool.

Hodgson, 63, was voted English football's manager of the year last season, after successfully guiding Fulham to the Europa League Final.

His new contract with the Baggies runs until June 2012, West Brom announced on their website.
