The Crystal Palace boss had appointed Rooney as his captain when in charge of the national team hence knows well the quality of the striker, describing him as a fantastic player who can score goals.
He stressed that Rooney left the Premier League too early because he still has the ability to compete at the level in the league
Admitting that the decision was made by Manchester United and Everton to let Rooney go, Hodgson said he still has the chance to have a return.
