With friend or foe Jimmy Bullard set to make his return to Premier League football, for Hull, at Craven Cottage on Monday evening, we learn that his reputation as a joker earned a swift rebuke from Brede Hangeland.

Apparently, Hangeland, when he arrived at Craven Cottage, was perfectly aware that Bullard had a reputation as something of a joker. Keen to maintain some dignity as the new arrival, Brede let Jimmy now in no uncertain terms that he`d not be susceptible to any practical jokes, as he recalls,

“I said to him early on – don`t do anything to me and he respected that.”

“I am not a scary character but people do respect me.”

“Jimmy`s a funny guy and a good player.”

“He was a big person in the changing room.”

“He`s always in a good mood and made people laugh. We miss Jimmy in that sense, and on the pitch.”


Are all Scandinavians killjoys? It was only a laugh Brede!
