Wits Confirm Hunt Appointment

Shortly after SuperSport United announced that Gavin Hunt was leaving the club, a statement from Wits confirmed that he had joined the Clever Boys.

The Siya crew revealed earlier today that Hunt was set for an afternoon press conference in which he would be leaving Matsatsantsa, and now, after months of speculation, it has been finally been confirmed that he will be in charge of Wits next season.

Jose Ferreira, the club’s CEO, said in the statement, “We are delighted to have been able to secure the services of Gavin Hunt as our head coach. He has an impressive CV not only with SuperSport United but with every other club he has coached prior to that. We have a signed a long term contract with him and we believe that, in line with our long term vision for the club, he is the right coach to lead the process that we have embarked on to transform our team into a consistently competitive force in South African football.

Ferreira went on, “We also want to take this opportunity to publicly thank Clive Barker for the remarkable work he has done with our team over the last 5 months of the season. Whilst we seldom found ourselves outside the top 8 in the first half of the season, it was with Clive at the helm, in the second half of the season, that we saw the quality of our players come through and where we imposed ourselves on the field of play. Clive will always be remembered as an important part of our initial efforts to turn things around at our club.”

Meanwhile, SuperSport have stated that they have a list of potential candidates to take over from Hunt, although explained that there will be a process before a successor is decided upon.
