Aaron Hunt: I would switch to HSV again and again

After six years at HSV, Aaron Hunt’s (34) contract was not renewed. The former playmaker is enjoying the Dubai sunshine with his family. The ex-national player took a short break from the pool for the interview with BILD.

BILD: How much will you miss HSV?

Hunt: “I will probably only really realize that when I watch games from my ex-club or play football somewhere else myself. But I’m actually a little sad. ”

BILD: Looking back, would you choose HSV again?

Hunt: “Of course. No question. I would always take this step and move to Hamburg. The club is just mega. I loved playing for HSV from the very first minute and felt very comfortable there. ”

BILD: Even if you had a difficult start in the Volkspark in summer 2015?

Hunt: “That’s true. But I was also able to understand the critical fans who whistled me out at the beginning because of my Bremen origins. I hope that I was able to convince some of my critics during my time at HSV. ”

BILD: Now one wonders where you will be playing from next season.

Hunt: “There is currently nothing concrete. I stay patient and keep myself fit even on vacation. In any case, my torn calf muscle has completely healed. ”

BILD: What are your fitness efforts like?

Hunt: “I worked a lot with a coach here in Dubai. And after my return I will continue to plow with my Hamburg personal trainer Tino Krohn. ”

BILD: What if Werder, where you played for 13 years, contacted you and wanted to sign you?

Hunt: “I can definitely say that a move to Werder is out of the question for me.”

BILD: Why?

Hunt: “Because I’ve been there before and the sporting chapter for me in Bremen is over and should stay. Even if I owe a lot to Werder and became a professional there. ”

BILD: The Qatar club Al-Khor, where your buddy Pierre-Michel Lasogga storms, should be interested in you. Have you ever had contact?

Hunt: “I had an informal conversation with the son of trainer Winfried Schäfer, Sascha. That’s when I learned a lot about the club. Nothing more has happened so far. But I have always said that I am not averse to playing abroad. ”

BILD: Back to HSV. You have seen eight coaches. Who was your best?

Hunt: “For me, Christian Titz was the best in terms of sport. The coach transplanted his idea of ​​ball possession football into the team in a very short time. Playing this kind of soccer came closest to me personally. ”

BILD: What was your HSV highlight from the six years in Hamburg?

Hunt: “Certainly the 4-0 derby triumph at Millerntor 2019. That was a great experience and will certainly remain unforgettable.”

BILD: And the biggest disappointments?

Hunt: “Of course, relegation in 2018 and then missing out on returning to the Bundesliga three times. Those were painful experiences. ”

BILD: And who was your best teammate in the last six HSV years?

Hunt: “I think it was the Brazilian Douglas Santos who just won the championship with St. Petersburg.”
