Hunt: Credit To Sundowns But…

You can hear the disappointment in Gavin Hunt’s voice when he relives how his Bidvest Wits side missed out on the Absa Premiership title last season.

“I am sick as a dog that we didn’t win the league when we had it in our hands. Credit to Sundowns, they deserved it – but we lost our way,” the four-times championship winning mentor tells the Siya crew.

Hunt is raring to go again ahead of the upcoming 2019/20 season and has confirmed eight new arrivals to freshen up the Clever Boys, who finished in third place behind eventual winners Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates, the runners-up.

“Pirates have done all the signings,” the coach said as he highlights that their rivals have also beefed up their squad.  

“But the problem is that when you have too many, you will only find out after a few games what your best line-up is. Hopefully it takes them longer than normal (he chuckles). For us we have to just be competitive and keep our structure. When we won the league we were consistent. You can’t be up 2-0 to Cape Town City and lose 3-2, and we lost a lot of our home games. We had no form at home, it was atrocious.”  

Wits open their campaign with an away game to AmaZulu on August 3.
