Hull City boss Liam Rosenior believes Leeds United made a fantastic decision appointing Daniel Farke in the summer.

Rosenior was speaking to BBC Radio Humberside ahead of Leeds’ trip to Hull tomorrow night where he was full of praise for the job Farke has done in his brief time at Elland Road so far.

After a long interview process during the summer, Farke was the man San Francisco 49ers Enterprises turned to following Leeds’ relegation thanks to his excellent track record in the Championship.

Rosenior was in attendance at the Den on Sunday as Farke picked up his second league win as Leeds manager, defeating Millwall 3-0.

The Whites will be looking to continue that momentum on Wednesday night but will face a Hull side who themselves have made a good start to the season, as they sit fifth.

Rosenior praises Leeds boss Farke

Speaking ahead of the game tomorrow, Rosenior claimed that he is a big fan of the way Farke has his side’s playing football, and is looking forward to the task at hand.

He said: “He is fantastic. I remember covering his time at Norwich, they played really, really good football. Outstanding coach. They have made a really good choice with him. They are organised and they know how they want to play under him.

“I went to watch them yesterday [against Millwall]. They are a very good team with a lot of attacking threats on the pitch, which you expect. Leeds are a big club, we are a big club. Geographically there are bragging rights, I played in a few games against Leeds as a player here and they are different.”

Hull will no doubt be up for the task of playing Leeds but is another game on the road that could play into Farke’s hands, with Rosenior also a fan of his side’s building from the back.

If Hull are prepared to open up then that could provide Leeds‘ attackers the space to hurt the home side, though there is no doubt they possess more attacking quality than what Millwall did on Sunday.
