SETBACK IS HELL FOR HULL ACE DIO
THE KC Stadium faithful are yet to get a glimpse of their £1.7m summer signing, but Adama Diomande has promised the Hull City supporters it will be worth the wait.
The 25-year-old joined Hull last month, but has already been forced out for six weeks to have a groin operation.
But although he admits it has been frustrating on his arrival to a new country, the Norwegian forward has promised to make a big impact when he is finally ready to be unleashed.
“I am suited to the English game,” said Diomande, who joined from Stabaek. “It is almost like the Norwegian game. There are more highprofile players here than in the Norwegian league but when you see Norwegians come over they are very good.
“It has been very frustrating being out. Football is my life so it’s not the same when you are just watching.
“It’s not always a good start to make but I have signed for three years and I’m very patient about my stay here.
“I will be 100 per cent fit when I come back.”
WAIT: Adama Diomande
