1032 Michael Hector

Biography

A tall and powerful centre back, Hector joined Hull City in August 2017, the second player to be loaned from Chelsea thanks to Russian gaffer Leonid Slutsky’s connections with the Blues’ hierarchy.  Hector slotted straight into the first XI and immediately put in assured performances.  As the season continued his form oscillated and he was only chosen occasionally by Nigel Adkins.

After a youth team career at Millwall, Hector had a short spell at Thurrock before joining Reading in 2009.  He made a strong impression for the Royals, but only after he toured the British Isles football scene with a long succession of loans – which perhaps means he is destined to never score against a lower league opponent and celebrate without guilt.  His form in 2014-15 resulted in Chelsea claiming his signature, but it was perhaps inevitable given his wandering history that he was immediately loaned back to Reading for the 2015-16 season.  He spent the following season on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt.

Despite being born in the East End of London he qualifies for Jamaica through his parentage, for whom he made his senior international debut in 2015 and is now a regular choice.
