Hunt Sends Message To Chiefs Ahead Of CAFCL Final

By Velile Mnyandu

New Chippa United head coach Gavin Hunt has sent a message to his former club Kaizer Chiefs ahead of their CAF Champions League final.

Hunt was in charge of Chiefs’ first 12 CAF Champions League matches in their historic run to the final but was sacked ahead of the semi-finals.

He collected five wins, five draws and two defeats before Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard guided Amakhosi past Wydad Casablanca over the two legs in the semi-final.

The Glamour Boys will now face Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly in the final, with Hunt wishing them all the best ahead of the match on 17 July.

“They will come back stronger with all the signings and changing and things that they’ll do, you know,” he told iDiski Times senior writer Velile Mnyandu.

“So I wish them well, and I wish them well, on the (next) weekend. Let’s win this thing, it would make me feel better. 

“So yeah, I don’t really want to go there, but I wish them well. I mean, I’m in a new venture now. We move on, we move forward. 

“And in football, you know what to do, football never stops, things change all the time. And you’ve got the basic principles of how football clubs run, and what they need to do. It will never change. That’ll never change. 

“As long as you work with integrity and honesty. And I’m authentic person. I work with integrity and honesty. And I say it like it is with no hard feelings but that’s what we need in this football club and we will be successful.”

Chippa announced their first signing on Thursday, with goalkeeper King Ndlovu becoming the first player to join the Chilliboys since Hunt arrived at the club.
