Hunt Comments On Facing Simba Crowd
Gavin Hunt has revealed how he and his Kaizer Chiefs players feel about potentially facing a hostile Simba S.C. crowd on Saturday.
The Amakhosi coach addressed media in a press conference in Dar es Salaam on Friday, saying his team will take nothing for granted despite their 4-0 first-leg lead.
The Glamour Boys will play in front of a crowd for a first time since March 2020 after CAF and the Tanzanian government allowed 10 000 spectators to enter the National Stadium on Saturday.
Hunt, though, believes his players will relish playing in front of fans and that it will not be a disadvantage for his side.
“I think the players are looking forward to play in front of people,” Hunt said, when asked by iDiski Times about potentially facing a hostile crowd.
“I think it’s been a bit of an achilles heel for us this season, having no supporters, and I think it’ll be good to enjoy a good atmosphere, and I’m sure it’ll be a good atmosphere tomorrow.
“Everybody’s looking forward to playing in front of people, as you’ve seen in leagues around the world.”
The game kicks off at 15:00 SA time, when Amakhosi could reach the semi-final of the competition for a first time in their history.
