Much like Wolverhampton Wanderers, Hull City are finding it a bit more difficult than first anticipated to replace their fired manager.

The Tigers got rid of Shota Arveladze, and the favourite to take over was Pedro Martins, currently without a job after leaving Olympiacos earlier in the year.

He even travelled to watch a Hull game, with many believing that he would sign sooner rather than later, but statements from both the Championship club and the Portuguese manager then emerged stating the parties weren’t able to agree on terms for him to take over.

That leaves the MKM Stadium residents without a man in charge, meaning the search continues, with names being thrown around as potential targets.

One of those has been Bruno Baltazar, currently in charge of Rochester NY in the MLS Next Pro, but the Portuguese hasn’t heard anything from Hull.

He was reached by A Bola, who asked him about the rumours, and he said: “So far, no one has contacted me. I’m honoured to be one of the hypotheses, of course. It’s true that I have experience of English football at Nottingham Forest, but for now they are baseless rumours.”

His time in England was as assistant manager to Sabri Lamouchi when the Frenchman was in charge of the Tricky Trees.

He spent just over a year there, having previously been the manager of AEL Limassol and APOEL Nicosia in Cyprus, as well as Estoril Praia in Portugal.
