Hull City new signing Yannick Sagbo
Hull City boss Steve Bruce believes Yannick Sagbo will surprise people this season.
Bruce landed the Ivorian forward from Evian earlier this summer.
He told the Daily Mail: “Sagbo might surprise a few. He is big and powerful, technically very good. I hope he can go and show the Premier League what he’s shown me in the last two weeks because if he does we’ve got a player, a proper player.
“I look at what we’ve done and it’s light years away from where we were when we played Hartlepool 12 months ago. That’s no disrespect to anybody here. That’s what getting up does”, Bruce said.
