Hull City finished 13th in the Championship last season under the guidance of Nigel Adkins.
Adkins’ contract with the Tigers was set to expire in the summer and in June, he left the club after decided against signing an extension.
The English side announced Grant McCann as Adkins’ successor and the former’s arrival did not come as a positive news for Markus Henriksen.
Hull have played four matches in the league and one in the League Cup so far and the midfielder wasn’t included in the squad for any of the five fixtures.
The Norway international was a regular inclusion in his side’s starting lineup last season as he made 39 starts in the league. However, the situation has been different this term for the player under McCann.
“It’s interesting [Henriksen’s situation at Hull]. Markus has performed at a very high level for us, in virtually all the games he has played,” Hansen told TV2.
“When he hasn’t been in Hull’s plans, that could be a two-sided case. He wants out and wishes maybe for other challenges, and Hull then take the consequences of that and bring in replacements. So regarding that we’ll just have to hope it works out for him”.
He added the player’s situation is ‘not optimal’, and suggested the player ‘has to find another club to get more playing time’, because, in the long run, staying at Hull isn’t going to help his case with the national team.
