Soccer Laduma can confirm Gavin Hunt has been suspended by Chippa United following a string of poor results!
It comes as no surprise after the chairman Siviwe ‘Chippa’ Mpengesi told a local publication a week ago that the coach was lucky he was still in charge given the owner’s well documented impatience with those previously at the helm.
According to Siya sources, Hunt was informed last night about his suspension and will not be taking the squad through training sessions while the club looks into whether to sack him or give him more time to change the results.
The Chilli Boys are third from bottom in the DStv Premiership standing with one win from 10 games, which include four draws and five defeats – they are just three points ahead of bottom side Marumo Gallants.
Gallants in fact hired a new coach yesterday, Dan Malesela, who know of Mpengesi’s wrath having been fired and hired on several occasions by Chippa.
Indications are that Hunt will be on ice until told otherwise, which means the club will have an interim coach when they return to action away to Baroka this weekend.
