“I hate these coaches, and I won’t mention names. They hug the players. It’s all for show. It’s all a lot of bulls**t,” Hunt said.

“When they lose, are they hugging their players? No, you don’t see them hugging the players. So we’ve got to have a good relationship, yes we’ve got to have a good environment where we’re all working towards a common goal. I don’t like to be false with a player. I see this guy, I never saw Sir Alex Ferguson hug his players,” Hunt said on  This Is Football Africa.
