Hull give Ad­kins man­age­rial reins

The Citizen (KZN) - - INTERNACIONAL - Lon­don

– Strug­gling Hull City have ap­pointed Nigel Ad­kins as their new man­ager, the Cham­pi­onship side said this week.

For­mer Southamp­ton man­ager Ad­kins re­places Rus­sian Leonid Slut­sky, who was sacked on Sun­day with the Tigers record­ing just four wins in 20 games to sit three points above the rel­e­ga­tion zone in 20th po­si­tion.

“Ad­kins will over­see his first train­ing ses­sion this morn­ing and will take charge of the side for Saturday’s home game against Brent­ford,” Hull said on their web­site.

The Bri­ton was sacked as Sheffield United man­ager in 2016. –
