Hunt: I Never Thought Bucs Midfielder Would Make It

Bidvest Wits coach, Gavin Hunt, has indicated that he initially thought that Orlando Pirates midfielder, Edwin Gyimah, wouldn’t cut it.

Gyimah joined SuperSport United from Ghanaian outfit, Wa All Stars, in 2011, and enjoyed a successful spell under the tutelage of Hunt, before the coach departed for Wits in 2013.

The 24-year-old fell out of favour at Matsatsantsa and was sent out on loan to Mpumalanga Black Aces last season, before securing a move to Orlando Pirates ahead of the current campaign.

Hunt has indicated that he was also interested in signing the utility midfielder-cum-defender a number of times after his move to Braamfontein.

“Edwin’s story is funny because when I first saw him, I never thought he’d make it. He was so shy and getting words out of his mouth was a challenge, but I must say I enjoyed working with him,” Hunt told Soccer Laduma.

“He is one of the most dedicated and committed players I have ever coached and when I left SuperSport United for Bidvest Wits, I wanted to take him along, but his price tag was just too high.

“He is versatile and takes instructions very easily, so I really enjoyed working with him. Even when he was at Mpumalanga Black Aces I wanted him.

“I am happy he joined a team of Orlando Pirates’ calibre and he has done well there so far. I know one day he will realise his dream of playing in Europe.”

Do you think Gyimah should be playing more often at the Buccaneers? Do you think he should be used as a midfielder or defender?
