Hull chairman Duffen backing Brown rant

Hull City chairman Paul Duffen had no problem with manager Phil Brown's public rant against his players during their 5-1 thrashing at Manchester City.

Duffen said: "Players have an obligation to deliver and he felt let down by their first-half performance.

"He had given the players Christmas Day off to let them be with their families and they were obliged to put on a complete performance. They did not deliver in the first half and he has my full support and backing."
