Phil Brown is being linked with a return to Hull City, as per a report by Hull Live.
Former Hull chairman, Paul Duffen, is trying to buy back the Championship club backed by a Saudi Arabian consortium. It is also believed that the Hull City Supporter’s Trust have also put in a bid to buy the club from the Allams.
Talk of the possible Duffen takeover have sparked rumours that he could bring back Phil Brown as they had a good relationship.
When asked about the possible return to East Yorkshire, Brown told the Swindon Advertiser, “As far as I’m concerned, I’m in work. He (Duffen) is putting a consortium together, I believe, to buy Hull City back. It’s always nice to be connected with other clubs, because of the success story we had there.”
Brown is currently in charge of League Two side Swindon Town. Duffen appointed him as manager of Hull City in 2006 when they were 22nd in the Championship and steered them away from danger in his first season in charge. Brown then guided the Tigers to promotion to the Premier League for the first time in their history in the campaign after.
Dean Windass’ volley in the 2008 Championship Play-Off final sent Brown’s side into the top flight and he kept them up in their first season.
Phil Brown is no doubt one of the most successful manager’s in Hull’s history, but surely he won’t be coming back for another spell in the dugout at the KCOM Stadium?
