Aina Gets Adkins As New Coach At Hull City

Aina Gets Adkins As New Coach At Hull City”

Slutsky and Hull parted company on Sunday evening, after the Russian made a hard start to life in the Sky Bet Championship, guiding the Tigers to just four victories from their opening 20 fixtures of the season.

Former Scunthorpe, Southampton, Reading and Sheffield United boss Adkins, 52, becomes the Tigers' fifth manager in less than 17 months and replaces Leonid Slutsky, who departed by mutual consent on Sunday.

"Adkins, a Championship promotion-winner with Southampton in 2012, will be joined at the KCOM Stadium by his trusted assistant Andy Crosby on an 18-month contract".

Adkins had been out of work since leaving Sheffield United back in May 2016.

The Briton, who was sacked as Sheffield United manager in 2016, is the fourth permanent manager appointed at Hull since Steve Bruce's exit in July that year with the club in danger of being relegated for the third time in four seasons.

It may not have quite worked out for him with the Blades, or in a previous spell at Reading, but Adkins did memorably lead Southampton from League One to the Premier League - winning 67 of his 124 games - while he also guided Scunthorpe into the Championship on two occasions.

His first match as Hull boss will be Saturday's home game against Brentford.

Hull have moved quickly to replace Slutsky, and for the club's supporters that is the most important thing.

Hull have a testing run of fixtures coming up, which will test Adkins and his coaching staff, with the Tigers in desperate need of results.
