Roy Hodgson angers Watford fans with behaviour moments after flops relegated

Watford's fanbase after applauding the Crystal Palace supporters and sharing a joke with Wilfried Zaha moments after the Hornets' relegation was confirmed on Saturday.Zaha's first half penalty was enough to separate the two sides at Selhurst Park, condemning the visitors to their second Premier League relegation in three seasons.Hodgson, who managed the Eagles between 2017 and 2021, was given a warm reception by the home crowd as he walked off the field after the game, but his decision not to go over to the away end raised plenty of eyebrows, leaving Watford fans understandably furious with the 74-year-old.And just to stick the knife in a little more, the Sky Sports cameras also caught the former England boss laughing and joking with Zaha - who it's fair to say Watford's fans aren't super fond of - on the touchline."This makes my blood boil," one fan fumed on Twitter, "embarrassing for #watfordfc supporters that Pozzo and Duxbury thought Hodgson was ever a good idea. Absolute failure."Another wrote: "F*** Off Hodgson.
