Former Player Announced as New Hull City Manager

Liam Rosenior

It may still only be November, but Hull City have already had a rollercoaster ride in the Championship. Georgian Shota Arveladze didn’t last long, with his replacement being the current agenda. Former Hull player Liam Rosenior is the man in question, landing the job shortly after being let go by Derby County.

Hull City Have a New Manager

All About Liam Rosenior

Liam Rosenior’s most recent job was with Derby County. He was at the club through some very tumultuous times, as a coach under Wayne Rooney before replacing the Manchester United legend. He was a much-loved character there and has now been afforded the chance for his first out-and-out foray into management. Paul Warne is the man who has replaced Rosenior at Pride Park.

When it comes to Rosenior as a player, Hull City was the side that he ran out for most. He is well-known for representing Brighton & Hove Albion as well as Fulham, but he made over 100 appearances for the Tigers. Between 2010 and 2015, the defender racked up 161 outings for Hull and won promotion to the Premier League.

Aside from all of that, Rosenior had a stint as a Sky Sports pundit, primarily on the EFL action and his analysis was second-to-none. Many were sad to see him depart that role but he can continue to establish himself as a true footballing brain at the helm of Hull City.

Hull City Announce Shota Arveladze’s Successor

As previously mentioned, Arveladze had some success in charge of Hull City but in the end, it didn’t work out. Besides the likes of Phil Brown, Nigel Adkins and Grant McCann, there has been a lot of managerial turnover in the last decade or two. Rosenior can be the type of man in charge to establish a project at the KCOM Stadium.

There is a need for Hull City to establish themselves as Championship regulars with the club bouncing around the EFL a fair bit in recent years. As it stands, Hull are in a precarious position just slightly above the relegation zone. Wigan Athletic, West Bromwich Albion and Huddersfield Town are currently the bottom three so there is plenty of competition available there. Millwall and Cardiff City are the opening two games for Rosenior, a trip to the Den being a tough start indeed.
