Aina Feeling At Home In Hull

04 September 2017
Ola Aina says he and the Tigers are the perfect match

The 20-year-old right-back, who is enjoying his first loan spell away from parent club Chelsea, has impressed during the early stages of his time in black and amber, playing each and every minute of the Tigers’ opening five league fixtures.

His on-the-pitch contributions have earned him a nomination for the Club’s August Player of the Month award and when reflecting on his time in East Yorkshire to date, the youngster believes there is plenty of progress being made.

“Hull City is a good place for me because as people may know, I am a quiet guy,” Aina told whilst away on international duty with Nigeria.

“I just like to chill out and that area reflects me as a person. It is just really chilled and laid back.

“The lads are good, the area is nice, I have been welcomed into the team with open arms.

“I am happy here and most important of all, I am getting some game time. It is all looking good for me right now.

“I just want be playing regularly, playing well. I want to stay fit. My main decision was just to play games.

“I just need enough competitive games, enough games to challenge my ability and to make me a better player.

“What I have learnt so far is just knowing when and where to do things. Such as when and where to do skills, when and where to put the ball out or when and where to stick a ball down the line.

“I have learned to be disciplined with my football. That’s what I have learned so far.”
