Loans: Ex-Red inspires Amos

Ben Amos says his loan spell at Hull City is being aided by the tutelage of former Manchester United goalkeeper Gary Walsh.

Amos has played every minute of every Championship match this season as part of a 10-month stay at the KC Stadium, where he is working under current Tigers coach Walsh.

The 22-year-old helped his temporary team record a 2-1 win at Bristol City on Saturday and claims he has learned a lot from Walsh, who knows how to make it under Sir Alex Ferguson at United.

“I've got a lot of respect for Walshy and what he's done in the game. His knowledge of the game is second to none and he's a great bloke as well,” Amos recently told the Daily Mail.

“I consider him a friend and we bounce off each other every day. He's been through it all at United and he knows just how good you've got to be to make it there.

“Walshy was number two to one of the best goalkeepers in the world, Peter Schmeichel, and he understands what I need to do to give myself the best possible chance of going back to United and knocking the other two off the perch.”
