It annoys me’ – Liam Rosenior launches passionate Hull City defence amid FFP debate
Fans of rivals clubs have been criticising City for their ambitious recruitment strategy this season
Hull City boss Liam Rosenior says it’s about time some respect was afforded to the ambitious football club, who are determined to return to the Premier League.
City have flexed their muscles in the transfer market this season, both last
summer and again in January, with Rosenior a key reason some of England’s brightest young talents have turned down other clubs in favour of moving to the MKM Stadium. The head coach is keen to stress it certainly isn’t about money.
Jaden Philogene, Liam Delap and Tyler Morton were key arrivals in the summer while Fabio Carvalho, Ryan Giles and Anass Zaoury were some of the eye-catching January arrivals.

The fact Carvalho turned down other clubs in the Championship, as did Zaroury, generated plenty of disrespectful comments from elsewhere around the country, especially from rival supporters. But Rosenior, a passionate backer of the city in general, has come out fighting in the days after City’s accounts to the year ending June 2023 were published.
“We have players who come here with great names, they’re a great calibre of player, good footballers, they have not come here for financial reasons, they could have got more money elsewhere,” Rosenior told Hull Live in an impassioned defence of the city.
