Liam Rosenior was sacked by Hull in a surprise move on Tuesday after the club narrowly missed out on the Championship playoffs.

Rosenior, 39, returned to Hull as head coach in November 2022, where he had enjoyed a five-year spell as a player that included a run to the 2014 FA Cup final.

During an impressive season with the Tigers, Rosenior penned a new contract until 2026 in December and was named on a three-man shortlist for Championship manager of the season.

However, they fell just short of the playoffs, three points adrift of the top six, after winning just one of their final four games of the campaign.

"No matter how trying the circumstance, I have to remove personal sentiment from these moments and ensure the long-term vision of the club is at the centre of my thinking," said Hull's Turkish owner Acun Ilicali.

"Since Liam's arrival, we have enjoyed an open working relationship and progress has undoubtedly been made over the course of his tenure. He will always be a part of this family and I thank him for all his work.

"However, it has become evident that our visions for the future are not aligned and I feel that now is the time to make a change."
