Hunt: I Have Been In The Game Longer Than Pitso

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 12, 2018 02:03 PM

Bidvest Wits head coach, Gavin Hunt maintains that there is no extra element playing a motivation factor when coming up against Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday.

Wits were crowned champions of the Absa Premiership last season, edging Sundowns by just three points on the last day of the league campaign.

Masandawana are currently at the top of the league standings and will be coming up against the Clever Boys on Saturday, with Head Coach Hunt’s side able to play a big role in the Brazilians’ title hopes.

However, speaking to the media, Hunt admitted that there is no extra element of motivation when coming up against Pitso Mosimane on Saturday despite the possibility that the Students may be handing over the title to the Sundowns side.

“I don’t think like that,” Hunt told the media. “I have been in the game longer than him so I don’t think like that; I have (the) utmost respect for what he's done.”

Hunt then went on to reveal what he is thinking is ahead of Saturday’s Absa Premiership clash while there has been an injury crisis in his team.

“The thinking has got to be, we will see what we can put out, that’s going to be the biggest thing because we got a few out, but I think, we cant just go there and contain, we need to go and play, we cant do what happened here tonight (Against Ajax), we can’t play like that. We have got to try and be a little bit more positive,” he said. 

Wits and Sundowns meet on Saturday at 15:00.

This Pitso guy talks too much when things are going in his favour but when the team is loosing he is turn to be a crying baby .we know he achieves a lot as Sundawns coach but we mustn't forget that Sundawns got quality players as well ,so if he is the best as they say why did he fail in Bafana bafuny

Mamelodi Sundowns' Percy Tau was presented with a new Hyundai Tucson after training this morning, as the motor company revealed that they are now sponsoring the player. After the morning training session on a chilly morning in Chloorkop, Tau was surrounded my cameras as he was given the keys to his new vehicle. He was all smiles when he got in and drove off with his hot new wheels. Hyundai, who are sponsors of Sundowns, will work hand-in-hand with the Percy Tau Legacy, a foundation established by the 23-year-old, to help kids all over the country to go to school and get involved in sports

Well Huntie, you got to go for 3 points against these big mouth people. You already dropped 3 points against Ajax, that does not help your campaign at all. You need 3 points asap. Take them in this next match.

You said you going to decide this league title but now you singing another tune, Mr Hunty you won't stop this yellow train whether you have more experience than master tactician Pitso or not, but the bottom line is you will lose come Saturday. #8thLeagueLoading

I will just have to wait and see how Pitso respond to Hunt 's remarks, hope he didn't touch the wrong nerve.
