Hunt says he will not tolerate any player coming back to the camp carrying more weight than they left with before the lockdown. The former SuperSport United coach would like for his players to stay in shape so they could finish the season strong once the league resumes.

Hunt says he will be hard on players who fail to stay in shape and wants them to stick to the program given to them by the club for the lockdown period.

“I told the players not to rest on their laurels and forget about their jobs while they are sitting at home. It’s important to keep fit and to stay healthy. I made it clear that they must watch what they eat as it could make them gain extra kilos,” Hunt was quoted by Daily Sun.
