Following Kaizer Chiefs’ defeat in yet another Soweto derby at the weekend, coach Gavin Hunt made a comparison with his previous side, Bidvest Wits.
Amakhosi succumbed to a 5-0 aggregate scoreline over the two MTN8 semifinal legs against bitter rivals Orlando Pirates, and he was asked by the media if he had been able to pin point where the problem was.
“I can’t talk like that in the media about those type of things,” Hunt replied.
“You’ve just got to look at the Wits players the last two games (last season) – and that’s the difference, isn’t it? They’ve got the mentality, which, obviously, a team needs. The mentality is what we need. That’s what you’ve got to look for.”
Hunt coached Wits from 2013 until two months ago when the club was sold, renamed Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila and relocated to Venda.
“It was important to try get through it (Soweto derby) with a positive result. It was always going to be difficult from the first leg (trailing 3-0). We lost another two players again today, so that’s going to be another slog. The window is still open but we can’t do anything there. It is what it is. There’s a lot to work on, I can’t say too much.”
