Hunt: We Are Not Playing Friendlies!

Gavin Hunt had mixed feelings regarding Leonardo Castro’s performance in their 2-2 draw with Golden Arrows, and also lamented the options available to him.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns forward scored both goals for the Glamour Boys, and although Hunt was happy with the goals, he believed that the striker could have had more on the day.

He also warned that Castro cannot be the only source of goals, as he is unlikely to play the whole 90 minutes in every game.

“Castro scored two, he worked hard, he could have had five. He missed two or three chances in the first half, good chances, much easier than the ones he had,” said Hunt.

“I’m happy for him, but obviously he’s at an age now where he is not going to go the whole 90 minutes. But we’ll try and do the best with what we’ve got.”

Hunt also firmly denied the suggestion of younger players filling the void.

“We’re not playing friendlies, we are playing proper games. We need people with legs, determined, who want to do it,” he added.

“You know, obviously that is a problem, we need more legs. These young ones have got a bit of legs, so we need to play them now and again. But they also need to be tactically good and we haven’t had much time on the training ground.”
