Altidore and Hull Frustrated By Hold Up

MOST COMMENTED

Jose Altidore's debut for English Premier club Hull City has been delayed due to a swine flu scare in the U.S. squad in Mexico. Although the quarantine has been removed, the 19-year-old remains in New York awaiting international clearance from the U.S. government based on the results of a biometric test.

Hull City manager Phil Brown hopes Altidore will be ready for this weekend's game against Bolton, but says the hold up has confused him. "I might as well be speaking to Barack Obama. We're bamboozled by the whole process," Brown said.

Altidore has been training with his former MLS side New York Red Bulls in a bid to maintain fitness but according to Brown, the rookie has struggled to cope with the delay. "There's a 19-year-old lad sitting in a hotel room in New York and all he wants to do is play," Brown said. "I've not seen his 'Twittering' but I believe he should be doing it everyday to make sure people know how frustrated he is."
