Jozy Altidore who is the one of the personalities of Hull City and US Soccer [Football] is not going to participate in the game between Hull City and the Tottenham Hotspurs on the 16th of January 2010.
The reason is the recent earthquake in Haiti which claimed the lives of his two uncles. Mr. Altidore reported that he was “heartbroken” and “devastated” over the recent events in the troubled Caribbean nation.
He further stated that his parents [who are from Haiti] may go to the island and that it “was difficult to fathom what is happening”. Mr. Altidore also talked about visiting the island and has expressed his desire to “remain positive” in spite of what has transpired.
Phil Brown [who is the manager of Hull City] may grant Altidore “grievance time” since he may “noit be in the best state of mind to play competitive football”. Mr. Altidore also challenged the world to help in the situation of Haiti.
