Tigers midfielder lays into team-mates

Hull City midfielder Stephen Hunt has launched a scathing attack on his team-mates following their relegation from the Premier League. Hunt is expected to leave the KC Stadium after just one season this summer following his move from Reading after the Tigers slipped out of the top flight. Hull face an uncertain future amid mounting debts and several of the club's highest earners are expected to be shown the door to ease the wage bill. The Republic of Ireland international feels several of the players who earn the most in East Yorkshire should shoulder much of the blame for their miserable season.

Hate me

He said: "The desire of most players has been good enough, but the more money you get paid, the harder you should work. "You've got to set an example and unfortunately not all players have done that. "The people of Hull deserve better and I have said that to certain people in the changing room. "I'm not saying it behind their backs, I've said it to their faces, they know who they are. They might hate me for it but that's the way I feel."
