Ahmed Elmohamady: Loving life under Steve Bruce

The 26-year-old played 45 games for Hull last season, more than any other player as the Tigers enjoyed a wondeful campaign, retaining their Premier League status and reaching the FA Cup final - where they lost to Arsenal in extra-time.

Elmohamady was brought to England by Bruce in 2010 while he was Sunderland boss, before the duo linked up again at the KC Stadium in 2012.

"Steve Bruce is a great coach and I consider him to be my spiritual father," he explained to the Hull Daily Mail.

"He brought me from ENPPI in Egypt to Sunderland and then I joined him at Hull. He means a lot to me and I credit him for what I have achieved. He believed in me and that gave me confidence.

"My love for him doesn't mean that I would follow him to any club.

"I am a professional player and I have my own ambitions. But it is an honour to work with a coach with the stature and capabilities of Steve Bruce.

"Hull City faced a big challenge in our first season in the Premier League. We worked hard to keep a good position in the table and away from the relegation zone.

"Our first goal was to finish in the top ten. But most important was to continue to compete in the top flight. Without a doubt, we achieved a historic achievement by reaching the FA Cup final."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
