Mamelodi Sundowns coach, Pitso Mosimane, has congratulated Bidvest Wits’ Gavin Hunt for winning the Absa Premiership title.
The Students have taken the honours for the league title for the 2016/17 season, following their 2-0 win over Polokwane City on Wednesday evening.
While it is the first time that the Braamfontein outfit has won the league in their history, Hunt is winning it for the fourth time as he won back-to-back titles with SuperSport United between 2008 and 2010 during his time coaching the Tshwane club.
Hunt has been getting messages from the football fraternity congratulating him on a job well done and the Sundowns Champions League-winning coach has joined in with good wishes to the Wits mentor.
Mosimane took to the Sundowns’ official website to congratulate Hunt not only for his latest title with Wits but all four that he has won in his coaching career.
“I would like to congratulate ‘Huntie’ for winning his fourth league title. It was a healthy and competitive race and he deserves the title.
“This is the beauty of football, let’s do it again next season,” Mosimane told the Sundowns website.
Sundowns are currently in second place and behind Wits on the log. The Brazilians will want to win their game against Highlands Park to finish the season as runners-up to the Students.
