Fulham striker Diomansy Kamara says Fulham’s style of football and training methods were worse under Roy Hodgson than they are now.
Kamara praised new Fulham manager Mark Hughes, who replaced current Liverpool boss Hodgson in the summer, for his more attacking approach.
Fulham striker Kamara said: ‘We play more attacking football now. So for me it is better. I enjoy the style of football here more now under Hughes.
‘There is no fault with Roy Hodgson, he did really well here, but training with Hughes is better – you do more with the ball. You do more running with the ball and you are trying to score.’
Kamara is relishing the chance to play for such a highly-regarded former striker, saying: ‘Who does not know Mark Hughes? He had those years at Barcelona and Manchester United.
He was a great player with a lot of charisma. When you are player like Hughes, a striker, you can learn more, because he was a great striker.’
Kamara was not in favour with Hodgson, having been sent out on loan to Celtic last season. But an injury crisis among Fulham strikers has meant that Kamara is back in the first team picture for Fulham, coming on as a substitute in Saturday’s 0-0 home draw with Everton.
‘I was injured for the past few months but I think I have more chance now to play,’ he said.
‘I was on loan at Celtic and it was a good experience but I was there with Tony Mowbray and ,when he was sacked, he told me it made no sense to stay at this club. It was a good experience for me and I learned a little bit about Scottish football.’
Speaking about his injury, he added: ‘Someone kicked me on the foot in the summer – a sore foot, that is it. That has kept me out until now.’
