Former Fulham player Liam Rosenior could be poised to land his first permanent managerial role in the game. The 38-year-old has emerged as a strong candidate for the vacant Hull City job.
According to reporter Alan Nixon on his Patreon, the former full-back is on the radar of the Tigers as they look to find Shota Arveladze’s replacement. The East Yorkshire outfit are currently 16th in the Championship but are only six points off the play-offs.
New job incoming for ex-Fulham man?
Rosenior played for Fulham from 2003 to 2007 after they signed him from Bristol City as a youngster. He went on to play 92 games in all competitions for the London club and was a consistent performer at Craven Cottage.
The former England youth international rocked up at Hull after a spell at Reading and made 161 appearances in all competitions during his time as a player at the MKM Stadium, helping them gain promotion to the Premier League under Steve Bruce in 2013 and then to the FA Cup final a year later. He was a popular figure with the Tigers and may now be returning there as manager.
Hull have a few ex-Fulham players in their ranks these days. They swooped to sign midfielder Jean Michael Seri and Cyrus Christie on free transfers over the summer after they both left Marco Silva’s side after promotion to the top flight.
