Former Hull City Star Makes Liam Rosenior Prediction

Former Hull City midfielder Ray Parlour believes that Liam Rosenior could make a swift return to management after his shock departure from the club yesterday.

The decision to part company with the 39-year-old was taken following the Tigers’ failure to make the Championship play-offs. However, the ruling came as a shock to many, with the club’s ex-player having arguably overachieved. This was a view echoed by the EFL, who nominated the head coach for the division’s Manager of the Season.

Turkish owner Acun Ilcali has invested heavily in the playing squad since taking control in 2022. Premier League football is at the forefront of his mind, and he expressed a difference of vision between himself and the Head Coach upon yesterday’s announcement.

Hull had only failed to extend their season on the final day of the campaign, although they did begin the day as outsiders. Starting in seventh, two points behind West Bromwich Albion and three behind Norwich City, they were already reliant on other results to secure a top six finish. It ultimately proved to be in vain, as Rosenior’s team suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Plymouth Argyle.

Despite the failure, nobody expected what followed. Although form towards the end of the season tailed off, winning just three times in their final 13 games, it was thought that he still had enough credit in the bank. After all, he was only handed a new three-year deal in December last year.

With his new-found availability, former England international Ray Parlour believes there will be a number of clubs already weighing up a move. Speaking to NetBet Online Casino, he said.

“If I am an owner of a Championship club, I will be looking at Rosenior and thinking this guy can really take us to the next level.

“The mid-table clubs in the league who aren’t going in the right direction could well look at Rosenior as a coach who could take them into the play-offs next season, and help the club move in a new direction.

“Rosenior has good excellent credentials now and as mentioned above it’s a shock he has been let go and this could be someone else’s benefit.”

The links haven’t taken long to surface, with the coach already linked to the vacant position at Sunderland. The Black Cats endured a miserable campaign, finishing a lowly 16th. It is thought that they are hoping to make an appointment within the next few weeks to allow ample time for planning ahead of the new season.
