The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

MO­HAMED Di­ame is back­ing striker Abel Her­nan­dez to fire Hull City back up at the first time of ask­ing.

Her­nan­dez, 25, joined Hull for £10mil­lion in 2014 be­fore net­ting just four goals in 26 games last sea­son.

But he al­ready has three this time around and Di­ame is not ex­pect­ing the Uruguay in­ter­na­tional to slow down.

“Abel has started the sea­son with a lot of con­fi­dence,” he said.

“It was dif­fi­cult for him last sea­son. As you know, he’s not from this coun­try and he doesn’t speak English very well at the mo­ment.

“At train­ing, you can see how he came back af­ter the sum­mer. He’s ready to fight for this year.”
