Hunt’s First Words As Chiefs Coach

Gavin Hunt has spoken for the first time as the new Kaizer Chiefs coach, outlining his plans as his takes on one of the toughest jobs in the country.

The four-time league winning mentor was appointed by Amakhosi last week on a three-year contract, and with his glittering CV, the expectations are no doubt very high, especially with the club not having won a trophy in five years.

“Hopefully we can make it an enjoyable stay and win some trophies. The last few years have been a little bit barren, and hopefully we can turn that around,” said Hunt, speaking in a video insert put together by the club.  

“I understand the pressures of getting results because I have been doing it for a long time. Obviously this is totally different, we were always the ones trying to quieten the supporters and now we have to liven them up – it won’t be easy. The previous regime did really well, and now hopefully we can go one better and try improve on the results.”

Hunt, 56, takes over from Ernst Middendorp, who was close to ending the silverware drought until Chiefs were pipped to the Absa Premiership winners’ podium by Mamelodi Sundowns on the final day of the 2019/20 season two weeks ago.

“We need to play, we need to win and play the way people enjoy. But winning has got to certainly be first prize,” the coach added.

“This is a club that needs to compete in every tournament, be it the Telkom, Nedbank or MTN8 and in Africa, we are going to need help.”
