A Better Player

A Better Player

A couple of years in Holland have helped Jozy Altidore become a "better player" according to the new Sunderland striker.

The America said: 'I think I just became a better player in Holland than the one when I was at Hull.

'On and off the ball and linking up with the players around me, I just got better. It's that simple. I've become a much more confident player since then.

'The two leagues are completely different, but we're trying to play football which looks good and hopefully I can score some goals.'

I can't really remember much of him from his Hull spell, but his record in Holland with AZ Alkmaar speaks for itself as does his record with the USA at international level so I don't doubt he's right with what he says.

Altidore should be an exciting watch for Black Cats fans this season!
