New Hull boss Leonid Slutsky insists he has mastered English, despite being a novice to the language at the start of the year.
“It is a difficult language to learn but I was having lessons for eight hours a day at a very good school. I had a target and I think that helped. It was important to me that I learned the language before thinking about a job. It was important to me that, if I was going to work in England, I knew the language."
