Two More To Follow Hunt In Chippa Exit?

According to Siya sources, two more technical team members are set to follow coach Gavin Hunt out the door at Chippa United.

The Siya crew broke the news on Monday morning that the Chilli Boys had moved to suspend Hunt with immediate effect pending an investigation into what has led to their poor start in the opening 10 games of the DStv Premiership.

Chippa subsequently confirmed our story and announced Kurt Lentjies, who featured in six of those matches this season, will be taking over as caretaker coach since he has “recently” retired from football.

Soccer Laduma went digging again, and it’s emerged Hunt’s assistant, Ian Taylor, as well as Roy Limongelli, who was appointed technical advisor at the same time the coach arrived, have both been suspended and face a bleak future.

All three remain contracted to Chippa until June 2023, meaning if they are dismissed there will have to be a settlement paid out.

Recently, Premier Soccer League clubs have resorted to suspending coaches instead of sacking them as they look for a loophole around terminating their employment on-the-spot and then dragging them to unnecessary internal hearings.

Hunt isn’t the first, and given the growing trend, he won’t be the last!

Siya sources informed the crew on Monday that Chippa are already assessing their options as they plan for a choc-a-block schedule of league fixtures between now and the end of the year, which is crucial to their survival in the topflight.

Vladislav Heric has emerged as a potential replacement for Hunt as it’s unlikely the inexperienced Lentjies will be allowed to continue for the remaining 20 matches.  
What’s clear is that Hunt, Taylor and Limongelli are all on their way out…
