Hunt’s Impressions Of Chiefs Village, Message To Supporters

Following his visit to the Kaizer Chiefs headquarters and soaking it all in, coach Gavin Hunt has given his first impressions about the Village.

The 56-year-old was confirmed Amakhosi coach last week and will now get to visit the Naturena facilities daily.

“I had never been to Naturena in my life, so I was blown away with the facility and the support staff behind the football team,” Hunt said during an interview published by the club.

“I have not seen anything like this, and I have been all around the world to big clubs and this is really on par with what goes on there – that has been a big eye opener for me. To see the support staff behind the football team.”

Hunt said their performance now has to match the lush club base.

“We need to improve on the pitch. I think the club has improved so much off the pitch, so we need to bring the standards up – try make the team competitive and winning again. My goal is to get through the first day, get through the training ground, work with the players and see where we are and what I feel we need. That’s the bottom line,” he said.

The former SuperSport United and Bidvest Wits league winner also had a message to the Amakhosi faithful, who suffered the heartbreak of losing the Absa Premiership title on the final day of the 2019/20 season to Mamelodi Sundowns.  

“To all the Amakhosi supporters, this team needs the support of its supporters, in the stadium especially to get behind the team. The team has had an unbelievable they’ve just come out of where they were so close to winning the league,” said Hunt.

“I am sure the supporters are not happy. But it’s a stepping stone because where they were the previous season, there was a huge improvement. Can we, the next regime, improve the situation? Stay behind the team. Amakhosi for life!”.
