Injured Republic of Ireland and Wolves midfielder may be sidelined following a hip operation but he is already targeting Ireland’s crucial World Cup qualifier against Sweden for a return to Giovanni Trapattoni’s side.
The Waterford man has endured a tough 2012 failing to play any part in Euro 2012, suffering relegation at club level and struggling against an injury that ultimately required surgery. Now he is determined to regain his fitness, play his way into Wolves promotion push and win back a place in the national team. Hunt was speaking at the launch of Blue Square Bet’s sponsorship of two races on John Durkan Memorial Chase Day at Punchestown Racecourse on Sunday Dec 9. Visit www.bluesq.com for more information.
