Hunt: I’m amazed nobody snapped up Dzvukamanja


Bidvest Wits head coach admits he is quite surprised that none of the Absa Premiership teams have come knocking for the services of Zimbabwean international Terrence Dzvukamanja.

Dzvukamanja scored a brace and walked away with the Man of the Match award during Wits’s 3-2 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns in the Nedbank semifinal at Orlando Stadium on Saturday night.

“I am amazed that nobody has snapped him up, fantastic young player, Man of the Match against Sundowns, besides the two goals he was outstanding, played very well for us,” Hunt told reporters after the game.

The 26-year-old ended his Nedbank Cup campaign with four goals in three games, but his future remains uncertain as according to Hunt no team has signed him for next season.

Wits were sold to Limpopo businessman and Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) owner Masala Mulaudzi with all its players but it is still unclear as to which players will relocate to the Limpopo province with TTM.

“In a completely different role [Dzvukamanja played well] because of we don’t have Gift Motupa…I played Terrance in an unfamiliar position and I thought he was outstanding. But that is the story that is going to happen in the next couple of weeks, we are gonna have to play people out of position,” added Hunt.

Dzvukamanja has netted nine goals and provided one assist in 29 appearances in all competitions this season. Picture: Bidvest Wits.

“We might not have the best players but we have a good mentality I make sure of that, we can’t bring out the Andile Jalis, Lyle Lakays, but if you look at the game versus Sundowns I thought we did very well and very unfortunate to lose the game. We made three crucial errors, otherwise we would have won the game, that’s football.”

With regards to the 5-substitute new rule, Hunt said, “the people who got the best squads obviously got the best chance because they can go like-for-like and we don’t have that,” said the Wits mentor

“So for us, I’ve got eight, nine subs, two of them I don’t even know their names and they gonna have to play soon. I’ve seen them a bit at training, I’ve watched them in the Diski Challenge so they must play.

“But we are not here to give free caps away, games, we are gonna try our outmost and treat the game with respect which I think we did against Sundowns. I thought we gave it our all, to lose it like that is very unfortunate,” concluded Hunt.
