Hunt Finds Perfect Position For Chiefs’ Star Performer

Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt has finally found the best position for one of his star performers from over the weekend.

Kenyan player Anthony Akumu Agay was signed as a holding midfielder by former coach Ernst Middendorp, but Hunt has been using him in the central defence alongside captain Ramahlwe Mphahlele and he’s since put in solid shifts for the Soweto giants.

Agay has been gaining confidence as he plays more matches for Amakhosi and Hunt believes he is better suited to play in defence, rather than in midfield.

He was key at the back over the weekend when Amakhosi registered a crucial 2-1 victory over Cape Town City in the Mother City.

“He (Agay) is not a midfield player, no chance. I don’t know what he was signed as, but he is not a midfield player. He has played the last three or four games because we obviously have problems. He has done well, and I thought he was excellent again today and long may it continue,” Hunt told the media after the game.

Having moved up into the top eight with their victory over City, Chiefs have an opportunity to make it three DSTV Premiership wins in a row when they host troubled Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila on Tuesday, January 19.
