“He’s Doing A Brilliant Job” – Former Hull City Man Gives His Verdict On Manager – Exclusive

Hull City have found themselves in an unlikely play-off battle this season with Liam Rosenior at the helm.

The consistency that the side have maintained throughout the whole season has put them in a solid position going into the final nine games. Having only lost back-to-back league games once, their ability to pick themselves up after facing adversity has truly set the Tigers apart from their Championship opposition.

The recruitment team at the MKM stadium, led by owner Acun Ilicali, must be given substantial praise, with five of the club’s top six contributors to goals this season being new signings. For example, skilful winger Jayden Philogene, who joined for a reported £5million from Aston Villa in the summer, has already racked up eight goals and six assists.

However, former Arsenal legend and Hull player Ray Parlour told The Real EFL exclusively that Liam Rosenior also deserves a lot of the credit for the strong position that the Yorkshire club find themselves in.

“Roesenior is doing a brilliant job at Hull, he really is. It is fantastic to see, my old club doing so well,” the 51-year-old stated.

Parlour will always be best remembered for his time at Arsenal, in which he won multiple Premier League titles and FA cups. However, he also looks back on his time at Hull with great fondness.

“I remember people saying to me, Ray what do you want to sign for Hull for? I always wanted to play in a relegation battle. I found it exciting, more than I would have done in a mid-table side because at least you’re playing for something. So when we stayed up that season, it was an amazing feat for Hull.”

The former-Middlesborough man joined the Yorkshire outfit in February 2007 whilst the team sat in the relegation zone of the Championship. The experienced midfielder went on to play 15 times for the Tigers before the end of that season and helped them secure a spot in the second-tier for the following season. After not being retained at the end of the 2006/07 season, Parlour decided to hang up his boots and retire from professional football.

Hull currently find themselves in seventh place, three points off Norwich City, but do have a game in hand on the sides above them.

There is no denying that intelligent recruitment has helped put Hull into a battle for sixth place, however, having the squad is only a part of a winning formula. Parlour is correct to praise Rosenior for what he has done for the side, getting them playing some scintillating attacking football whilst keeping a certain level of defensive stability.

The run-in certainly doesn’t look easy for the Tigers, with Leeds United and Ipswich Town still to play, however, with the way they have been playing all season, there is no reason that they can’t beat those odds and grab a well-deserved spot in the play-offs.
