Hodgson considers wishing happy birthday to his England squad 'flippant'.
Hodgson said that neither he wishes his players happy birthday nor they wish him when he was asked a question about the same in light of the recent stories concerning Yaya Toure and Manchester City's alleged lack of action when the midfielder turned 31.
According to The Guardian, Hodgson said that he regards such exchange of greetings as being flippant, and does not feel that it has anything to do with being a professional footballer.
Hodgson said that he does not interfere in his squad's private lives.
However, the Englishman said that he could only congratulate Netherlands boss Louis van Gl for being appointed as Manchester United's new manager. ( ANI )
