Hunt: I Am Going To Play Winning Football

Having taken over a team whose style of play often came under the microscope this past season, Gavin Hunt has discussed his own winning formula.

“I am going to play winning football, I am a local boy. I know the history of this club, I know what is required and I know the demands – let’s have a go,” said the newly appointed Kaizer Chiefs coach in a video insert prepared by the club.

Ernst Middendorp, his predecessor, was heavily criticised for being one-dimensional and relying a lot on set pieces.

Amakhosi led in the race for the Absa Premiership title until the final day of the 2019/20 season when they were beaten to the winners’ podium by Mamelodi Sundowns.

“The most important thing in football, and forget about everything else, it’s the two Ps – played and points. Let’s get that right and we can find a way that’s pleasing on the eye and enjoyable to watch, making people want to come to the stadium,” Hunt explained.

“We’ve got a squad of players that came second by 20 minutes. There are players that need to win trophies again and there’s a lot of players that have also won a lot here. Are they hungry enough to still win more? Those who haven’t won, we need to get them to wanting to win more trophies. The bottom line is that we need a club going in the direction of trophies. I am excited, not scared. Sometimes people are scared, but I am not. I will face it head on, in the good times and bad times. The bad times will teach you more than the good times. Then hopefully we will have more good than bad.”
