Chiefs Terminate Hunt's Contract

Kaizer Chiefs have announced that they have terminated the contract of head coach Gavin Hunt with immediate effect. 

Amakhosi have struggled all season domestically and have now decided to let go of the former SuperSport United and Bidvest Wits coach. 

Despite reaching the CAF Champions League semi-finals with Amakhosi, Hunt has been under tremendous pressure and Wednesday's 2-1 defeat against Black Leopards left many wondering if he is capable of leading the club next season. 

The Soweto giants, who appointed Hunt before the start of the season after parting ways with Ernst Middendorp, are currently in 11th place on the DSTV Premiership standings, just five points ahead of 15th place Chippa United. They have registered just six wins in 28 matches and have lost 11 times. 

They are guaranteed to finish the campaign with their worst ever points tally. 

Hunt may have been successful with Moroka Swallows, SuperSport and Wits in the past, but the job at Chiefs have proven to be a difficult, even for someone as successful as him.

Many could argue, however, that the coach was hard done by when you look at the fact that he was unable to freshen up an ageing Amakhosi squad, due to the ban.

Chiefs have confirmed that Hunt's assistants, Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard, will take over in the interim.

Chiefs have two league matches left, against Golden Arrows and TS Galaxy.
