Hull City striker Marlon King says teammate Geovanni is as good as anyone you'll find at Manchester United or Chelsea.

"Geovanni is a class act," said King. "He just buzzes off the front two.

"He is a Brazilian and it doesn't take much to link up with him.

"We have been impressed not just by Geo's goals but by his work-rate. He has caught on quickly and adapted quickly.

"It is not just about having ability, it is about working hard at Hull because we don't have the players Manchester United or Chelsea do."
