Aluko enjoying Tiger's style

14 January 2013

Forward Sone Aluko believes Hull's style of play is the best brand of football he has sampled in his entire career.

The 23-year-old lists Birmingham and Aberdeen among his former clubs while he joined the Tigers on a free this summer following a stint with Scottish side Rangers.

Aluko has had a productive spell with Steve Bruce's men, scoring eight times to help propel them into the npower Championship's upper echelons.

"I've enjoyed it (here) a lot," he said.

"It's been good. I've got a lot of good team-mates here and they've got good staff here. The atmosphere in the club is really good right now and it shows with the results we're getting and the football we're playing.

"In my career so far, this is probably the best football I've played - we play a really good passing game and I enjoy playing in it."

Bruce clearly considers Aluko one of the main protagonists in that style of football as he admitted after the Leeds game that he would pay to watch the former Rangers man play.

"It's a nice compliment, depending on how much you pay!" Aluko added.

"I've got a lot of self confidence as it is but it's nice having a manager who believes in you and gives you freedom to go out and express yourself. It really helps you when you're out on the pitch."
