Khanye: Chiefs Was Better Under Middendorp Than Hunt

Footballer-turned-analyst, Junior Khanye, has blasted Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt for the team's loss against arch-rivals Orlando Pirates in the MTN8 semi-final first leg match at the weekend. 

Amakhosi were defeated 3-0 by their perennial rivals at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday, a result which has put Hunt and his team's chances of advancing to the final of the competition at risk.

“Gavin Hunt went there knowing that Chiefs can’t sign players, so there should be no excuses about that. He is not a better coach for Kaizer Chiefs, he is a similar coach to Ernst Middendorp and the only difference is that he is a South African. Under Ernst Middendorp, Chiefs never lost 3-0 to Pirates. Ernst was a poor coach and I didn’t rate him but as for Gavin losing 3-0 against Sundowns and Pirates respectively, that is bad. I can’t remember the last time Chiefs conceded six goals in two matches against Sundowns and Pirates, it’s history. No matter how poor the team had been in the past, it has never happened that they conceded six goals in two matches. Chiefs were better under Middendorp than now under Hunt,” said Khanye.

“(Nkosingiphile) Ngcobo is one of the best young talents I have seen in a while, a 20-year-old with a bright future, but the coach is playing him on the far left. The boy would do well in (Leonardo) Castro’s position as a false number nine, but the coach doesn’t want to play without Castro. That’s why I was shocked when Chiefs opted for Gavin Hunt of all the coaches they could have gone for. I was not a fan of Ernst Middendop but Chiefs never lost by such big scores under him and that's a fact,” he added.
