The vice-chairman of Hull City, Tan Kesler, commended the positive impact that Liam Rosenior, the Tigers’ head coach, has had during his first year at the MKM Stadium. When Rosenior took over in November the previous year, the team was facing the threat of relegation and had the worst defense in the EFL, languishing at the lower end of the Championship table.
Throughout the remainder of the season, Rosenior successfully led the team to mid-table safety by instilling his coaching philosophy, and in the early part of the current season, Hull City appears to be a contender for the play-offs. Their recent victory over Preston North End brought them just outside the top six, and a win against West Brom this weekend could propel them to third place, marking the first win at The Hawthorns since 2008.
Rosenior has established a positive working relationship with both Kesler and owner Acun Ilicali, and Kesler is eager to continue the progress they’ve made over the past year. He expressed confidence that other clubs may show interest in Rosenior but emphasized the commitment of the coach to the team’s success.
Kesler stressed the importance of unity among the coaching staff, players, and management, viewing Rosenior as an integral part of the team’s growth. He expressed a desire to work with Rosenior in the long term and mentioned the chairman’s satisfaction with the coach’s performance.
Kesler highlighted the ongoing communication between Rosenior and Ilicali as a key factor in the club’s success. He emphasized the need for a supportive and trusting environment within the club, and he expressed his happiness about the strong connections and dedication of the coaching staff, players, chairman, and himself, all working together to help the club progress.
