Former Rotherham United Manager Norman Hunter is in hospital after tests saw him diagnosed with coronavirus.

The seventy-six year old became Millers Manager in the summer of 1985 with Rotherham finishing mid-table in Division Three in his first two seasons. The following season saw Hunter sacked in December with Rotherham stalwart John Breckin taking over for two games before Dave Cusack was appointed in the hot seat although he couldn’t stop the Millers from being relegated via a relegation play-off with Swansea City.

Born in Gateshead Norman will always best be remembered for his partnership with Jack Charlton when they were both Leeds United players where he played around five hundred and fifty times and while at Elland Road he became the first winner of the PFA Players’ Player of the Year Award. In 1976 he moved to Bristol City before moving back to Yorkshire with Barnsley in 1979 becoming Manager at Oakwell the following year.

All at Vital Rotherham wish Norman a speedy recovery.
