Liam Rosenior is believed to be “well-liked” by the Hull City board, as the club look prepare to find a managerial replacement for Nigel Adkins.
The 54-year-old guided the Tigers to a 13th placed finish in the Sky Bet Championship table last season, but recently announced that his contract would not be extended at the KCOM Stadium.
This means that the club will now be on the lookout for an Adkins successor, as they look to make a push for the play-offs next season.
The Hull Daily Mail has provided a detailed update on the search for a new manager, with the report claiming that upcoming bosses Danny Cowley and Paul Warne are targets for the club.
But despite claiming that the club are reluctant to be appoint an inexperienced manager, it is believed that former City defender Liam Rosenior is “well-liked” by the club.
The 34-year-old was a regular pundit for Sky Sports’ coverage of the EFL last season, but is yet to gain any experience in management, despite being linked with the vacant Middlesbrough role.
The former defender will be no stranger to the Hull faithful, making over 160 appearances for the Tigers during a five-year stay at the club, and was the first signing under the club’s current ownership of the Allam family.
It would be a bit of a risky appointment if Rosenior got the Hull job, but you could probably see their thinking of they did hire him.
He knows the club, he knows the fans, and he would have learned a lot about the Championship whilst covering the EFL last term.
Frank Lampard didn’t have any experience of management before last season, and he has been a massive success at Derby thus far.
