Hull City manager Grant McCann has singled out Jarrod Bowen for praise after the forward fired his team to three points at the weekend.
The impressive Bowen got a double as the Tigers saw off Derby County to move to within four points of the top six.
And speaking to the Yorkshire Post, Hull’s manager McCann insists that Bowen can fire the Tigers to the Premier League if he carries on his form.
“Anywhere he plays, he’ll have an effect on the game. He delivers every weekend and, for me, he’s the best. He’s grounded. It’s not me over-hyping him, it’s there in black and white for everyone to see,” McCann said.
“We feel as if he’s getting better and better all the time. He’s the best in this league – honestly, he really is. He wants to play at the top level and, hopefully, it’s with us.”
Bowen’s goals were numbers seven and eight in the Championship this season for the 22-year-old and he will be hoping to continue his fine form over the busy winter period.
The forward is firmly on the radar of a number of Premier League clubs already. If Hull aren’t promoted this season then it’s hard to see them being able to hang to a player of such talent.
Bowen is going right to the top. There is no question whatsoever that he is a colossus of a player at this level and will move to the Premier League.
He scored over 20 last year and is already well on course to do so again. Hull need to capitalise while he is there, otherwise it’s going to be a case of what might have been in future seasons when he has left.
