Hunt appeared to be in the running for the South African national team job following Shakes Mashaba’s dismissal last year, however, he was once again overlooked as Stuart Baxter was handed the position earlier this month.
Speaking to SL Radio recently, the three-time league title winner spoke about his support for Baxter and his hopes for the national team going forward, even though he's happy with Bidvest Wits.
He said, “Any coach’s ambition, my ambition, is to coach in a World Cup. That’s got to be the ultimate, even if you get smashed 3-0 coaching Iran or Saudia Arabia or something like that.
“Honestly though, I think my chances of coaching a foreign team at the World Cup are bigger than coaching our national team, maybe I’ll be a Brian Clough… I don’t hold my breath, I work hard and do my thing. I’m very happy with what I’m doing.
“I’m looking at opportunities certainly, and my club knows that. If the opportunity comes in a league that’s, I won’t say more competitive, then it must come.”
