Hunt On SuperSport Exit Talk

SuperSport United head coach Gavin Hunt wants to remain at the club next season with his contract set to expire next month.

Hunt has opened talks with Matsatsansa over a new deal despite recent interest in his services from Sekhukhune United, as per SABC Sport.

Having returned to the club in 2022 for a second stint, he led them to a third-place finish, CAF Confederation Cup group stages, which culminated in an underpar domestic campaign in the 2023/24 season with a seventh placed finish.

However, the four-time league winner is keen to continue the project at the club with his youthful squad and take them back into Africa.

“Am I [being linked with other clubs]? Why is it because I have the CAF A License to sit on the bench now? Haha. No there’s been a lot [of talk] but when you come here into the course you get tucked away a little bit from reality,” he said after graduating on Friday.

“But I will get back into things this afternoon and we [the coaches] will get back into what’s going on and there’s not much going on at the moment.

“Obviously, I want to get in CAF with SuperSport, where I am now, we missed it this year by one point, which is frustrating but it is what it is you know.”

Hunt won three league titles with SuperSport and one with the now-defunct Bidvest Wits.
