Hunt Breaks Silence On Chiefs Sacking

By Velile Mnyandu

New Chippa United head coach Gavin Hunt has finally broken his silence on being sacked by Kaizer Chiefs.

The four-time PSL winner was unveiled by Chippa on Wednesday, in a move that surprised many in the football industry.

However, Hunt revealed he is excited by the new challenge and wants to bring football success to the Eastern Cape.

Hunt also, for a first time, opened up on being released by Chiefs, despite leading them to the CAF Champions League semi-final.

“Well, I like to always think that when I’ve left the place, you leave it in a better place than when you came here. And that’s the most important thing,” he told iDiski Times senior writer Velile Mnyandu.

“I mean, obviously last season, we can talk, we can say all in the Champions League was an unbelievable achievement.

“(But) the less said the better, you know. I mean it’s the biggest club in this country, and it was an opportunity that we just needed to get through this phase. And then, you know, I’m sure it would have been better. 

“As I said, we move on to the new venture. Let me think and move forward. That’s also the good thing, because I’m gonna come with people that will work with (me) and there’s a big opportunity.”

Chippa have since announced that Roy Limongelli, who worked with Hunt at Bidvest Wits, will be the club’s new Technical Director, while the club’s new assistant coaches still need to be confirmed.
