Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen believes Sir Alex Ferguson's methods will have rubbed off on Hull City counterpart Steve Bruce.

Like Meulensteen, Bruce spent many years working with Ferguson at Old Trafford and our Head Coach admitted that sort of relationship can only be beneficial to someone undertaking a career in football.

He stated: “Any manager that has worked or played under Sir Alex will have remembered things that they will use, and I’m sure Steve isn’t any different.

“One of the most important things is that Sir Alex always wanted teams to play with a lot of endeavour, with a lot of speed and penetration. And obviously you have to look at the quality at your disposal, but the intentions are there [at Hull] and I think that game against Liverpool that Hull won 3-1 summed it up.”
