Vilakazi On Angry Hunt

Wits midfielder and captain, Sibusiso Vilakazi, has revealed how Gavin Hunt is getting the best out of the Clever Boys players.

Vilakazi has come off an excellent 2013/14 season where he amassed three individual awards at the PSL end-of-season awards ceremony. When asked in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma what role the hard-to-please Hunt has played in his incredible season, the Meadowlands-born player responded, “The coach has been harsh, hey. He knows what I’ve done and what can still come out of me. There were times I thought I did well and then he’d tell me, 'That’s not good enough.'

"I remember when I scored a hat-trick he told me I should have scored five goals! But I take all that as a positive because sometimes, when I’m sitting at home and watching the game again, I can see that I should have done better. If we scored six goals, but missed four chances, he will ask why we didn’t take them.”

‘The General’, as he is affectionately known, added, “Ja, that’s what I like about him. He pushes. He presses the right buttons, he gets angry and it’s good. If you see he’s angry, you have to say to yourself, “You know what? I’ve got to show him. I’ve got to prove him otherwise.” With him, it doesn’t matter who you play against - he wants three points. Playing to a draw is never good enough for him.

"I remember we drew against SuperSport United and you could see after the game that the guys wanted a win. It was a disappointment; a loss. That attitude is something he has brought to the team whereby you’re thinking that walking away with a draw feels like walking away with a loss,” he concluded.

For his efforts, Vilakazi was called up by Brondby IF for an assessment with a view to signing for them, but is set to go back for a proper trial next month. 

Vilakazi also talks about his trip to Brondby, and how it felt to become Wits captain this season. See his full interview in Soccer Laduma issue 873, on sale now!
