Warner rates Bullard return fantastic for Hull

Hull City goalkeeper Tony Warner says Jimmy Bullard comeback will lift everyone at the KC.

The Tigers' third-choice keeper, 35, spent three years as a Fulham player, two of those years alongside the midfielder.

And he cites Bullard's unquenchable enthusiasm and passion for the game as the reason why he will inspire his team-mates.

Warner told the Hull Daily Mail: "Jimmy's an infectious player, a very good-quality player. He's keen to get on the ball all the time. He's energetic, all over the pitch really.

"I wouldn't say he's a luxury player but he's a very skilful and well thought-of player. He had an England call-up and they don't hand them out to mugs. He's been injured but everyone knows he's about every single day.

"He's not one of these lads who comes in and just does his work, keeping his head down.

"He's boisterous off the pitch and on the pitch. You can't really change him. I think he will be a good asset to us and it is a shame he got injured."
