HULL City mid­fielder Stephen Quinn fears he will never get a se­nior Repub­lic of Ire­land call-up while Gio­vanni Tra­p­at­toni is in charge.

Quinn, 27, has played a star­ring role for high-fly­ing Hull this sea­son and his man­ager, Steve Bruce, has called for him to be given a chance by Tra­p­at­toni at in­ter­na­tional level.

But Bruce’s pleas have fallen on deaf ears and Quinn, whose brother Alan won eight caps, fears he won’t get a chance un­til Tra­p­at­toni leaves.

“I al­ways think about Ire­land, es­pe­cially when the in­ter­na­tional breaks come up and if I will get that nod or not,” said Quinn.

“I’m not sure I will now as this man­ager has not put me in dur­ing all his years there.

“I don’t know if I am his type of player, which is sad be­cause I would give my left foot to play for Ire­land, even if I had to hob­ble around on my right!

“I am very dis­ap­pointed that over the years he has never given me a shout for even a friendly or meet-up for a train­ing squad, just to show him what I am ca­pa­ble of.

“If he goes, maybe a new man­ager will come in and I can try and im­press him.”

READY: Stephen Quinn
