'Crazy owner' Ilicali targets PL following Hull takeover Acun Ilicali joked he was a "crazy owner" as the man dubbed Turkey's Simon Cowell outlined his ambitions for Hull following his recent takeover of the Championship club.Ilicali has thrown himself straight into life at Hull and one of his first acts was ending Grant McCann's two-and-a-half-year spell in charge and installing ex-Rangers striker Shota Arveladze as head coach.The Georgian was unveiled on Friday alongside Ilicali, who owns production companies and TV channels and announced his pending takeover of the Tigers whilst judging Turkey's version of The Voice.Asked if bringing Arveladze - who last managed Uzbekistan side Pakhtakor Tashkent in 2020 - at this stage of the season was a risk, Ilicali said: "Very good question. I was talking two weeks ago about the same thing."People were talking about relegation, relegation. But I was thinking about promotion, promotion, promotion, so my brain always works for the positive."I always have positive thoughts in my brain. That makes me dream."When you have the positiveness, you dream. Otherwise you cannot dream the upside. You dream downside, then you cannot produce, you cannot be brave enough."I'm always brave enough in my business. Whatever I did was very brave things and I will show it in this club too."We will make brave things but if you asked me if I'm still counting the points for the promotion? I'm still counting."Of course. I cannot say that we're going to be promoted this year but I can say that 'why not?"'Given the side are 19th in the Championship standings and 15 points off the final play-off berth, the Premier League may have to wait at least another season for a man loving life as Hull owner.
