Beattie: No Problem With Glenn

Last updated : 20 February 2004 By Mad Reporter
Media speculation had suggested that should Hoddle return to St. Mary's that the England striker may consider his future.

"A bit of a myth has sprung up about my relationship with Glenn," he told BBC Sport:

"I never had a problem with Glenn, I certainly have no axe to grind with him or grudge to bear and I would not slap in a transfer request.

"I've always had the highest regard for his coaching ability. He spent a lot of time with me on the training ground and I learned a lot from him.

"So if he was to return, I would have no problems and would certainly be able to work with him."
