Chiefs Star Opens Up On Hunt’s Coaching Style

Kaizer Chiefs defender, Ramahlwe Mphahlele has shared some insight into what the past few weeks have been like under the mentorship of newly-appointed Gavin Hunt.

Hunt saw a seven-year stint with Bidvest Wits come to an end last month after the club was sold to businessman Masala Mulaudzi and renamed Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila.

Amakhosi appointed the former Wits head coach at the helm on September 17, this following Ernst Middendorp’s departure from the club after the 2019/20 season came to an end.

“Gavin Hunt has been in the game for long, he knows what South African soccer is all about. He’s a proven winner. He is very precise in what he wants. We concentrate on what to do when we have the ball, what to do when we don’t have the ball and how to break down opponents,” Mphahlele said on Chiefs’ official website.

“He’s different. He pushes us hard and clearly wants the best out of everyone. One thing is clear, if you don’t work hard, you won’t be part of the matchday team. The coach clearly loves working with young players.”

“I am seeing it now at Chiefs as well. It’s interesting to see how he’s pushing them. The youngsters will need to step up and show that they are ready to compete for a first-team starting position. I think what we need is a mixture of senior players and youngsters.”

“From the first day of training, Hunt went straight into tactics. For sure, we are running a lot, but it is mostly with the ball. He also wants training sessions to be done in a certain way, with high intensity.”
