Outgoing Hull chairman Duffen backs Brown survival

Outgoing Hull City chairman Paul Duffen believes current manager Phil Brown will survive in the job.

Duffen left his post as chairman on Thursday morning, no more than 24 hours after playing down speculation that Brown was out of a job and his decision to step down has now increased the uncertain future of the club going forward.

But Duffen is confident that Brown is the man to lead the players and believes he should be retained as manager.

"I think he has got the ability to do so," Duffen told Sky Sports News.

"It is like anything. You want to shake up the snow globe and if I walk off the stage and somebody else comes in and brings in a new catalyst, it can absolutely help the club get back the confidence they need.

"I absolutely believe in Phil Brown and I do believe he will survive, in terms of managing Hull City in that they will be in the Premier League this time next season."
