Windass lifts lid on Hull teammates

Dean Windass has lifted the lid on his Hull City teammates.

In a column for the Daily Mail, Windass said of Geovanni: "Geo, as the fans call him and sing. Comes in and shakes everyone's hand before training every day - his little ritual. A lovely fella and he has a real English mentality about our game, which probably comes from his year at Manchester City. Takes the kicks and the fouls and he's a strong guy but I have no idea how because he's hopeless in the weights room. We're lifting heavy dumb-bells and he can hardly pick up the little girlie ones."

On fullback Paul McShane, who is on-loan from West Brom, Windass says: "Never stops eating. He was late for a meeting once because we caught him eating a chair. Loves a tackle in training, kicks anything that moves and, like a typical ginger and Irishman, he is aggressive in everything he does - defending, training, playing poker, talking, breathing. God help the man who takes his plate away from him."
