Hunt: Only One Team Can Compete In CAF

SuperSport United head coach Gavin Hunt wants to compete in the CAF inter-club competitions, but he wants to first do it domestically. The veteran coach helped Kaizer Chiefs to reach CAF Champions League in 2021.

Matsatsantsa recently got eliminated from the CAF Confederation Cup after playing five matches in the group stages and accumulating four points. Despite being knocked out they will travel to Algeria as they will face USM Alger in their last game of the group on Sunday.

Hunt made a huge claim that there’s no other teams in the DStv Premiership that can compete in the CAF inter-club competitions except Mamelodi Sundowns who has already booked a place into the quarterfinals of CAF Champions League.

“I embrace it.. I’m landing Tuesday and I’m playing Wednesday.. If we dominate on domestic success we will be better continental.” Hunt told the media.

“There’s no team in this country that can go to Africa besides one team. The other teams have no chance, their squad players ain’t good enough… I mean you’ve seen what happened when we went to the semifinal a couple of years ago.

“But you’ve seen what happened, you can’t there’s no ways and there’s one team that can do it.

“They can win the league with five games to go and then they can play the strongest team in Africa and that’s what they do. They try to win it early, fair play to them.”
