Hunt: It’s A Problem Because…

Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt has revealed his concerns about the club reaching the CAF Champions League semi-finals.

Despite going down 3-0 to Tanzanian giants Simba over the weekend, Amakhosi progressed to the CAF Champions League semi-finals, winning the tie 4-3 on aggregate.

The semis will be played in June, during the off-season, which is a concern for Hunt. It means Amakhosi will not get much rest once the domestic campaign is over. Should they progress to the final, Chiefs will play in July, though the final will not be played over two legs.

“Well, it’s a problem because it interferes with the pre-season and...but we will worry about that (at a later stage). We’ve got three league games left. We need to concentrate on those league games now and try get ourselves up the league,” Hunt told the Amakhosi media department after the match at Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium in Dar Es Salaam on Saturday. 

Hunt did not want to take credit for reaching the semi-finals, as Amakhosi continue to make more history for themselves in the competition.

“It’s not for me, it’s for the club. Don’t give it to me, it’s for the club,” the former Bidvest Wits coach said.

“It was difficult, but we got through which is the most important thing. We dug in.”
