Hunt reacts to Khune’s blunder


Kaizer Chiefs head coach Gavin Hunt admits it was disappointing to watch captain Itumeleng Khune make a blunder that led to them conceding the first goal during the 2-all draw against Black Leopards on Wednesday night.

The home side had to come back from a 2-0 down at half time to secure a point with a few minutes remaining at FNB Stadium.

Chiefs scored second half goals through Nkosingiphile Ngcobo and Khama Billiat, while Ovidy Karuru scored both goals for Lidoda Duvha.

But it was Khune’s mistake in the 12th minute that allowed the visitors to open the scoring through Ovidy Karuru, that received a backlash from the Amakhosi faithful.

“Any mistake on any football pitch is disappointing,” Hunt told the media after the match.

“Everybody makes mistakes, but it’s very disappointing. But that’s football and it’s a game of mistakes, it happens. We gotta to stick together, we stuck together, we were calm at half time. Made the shape change which I thought worked and then it was one way traffic in the second half.

“In saying that I thought we could have won the game that’s for sure, but from where we were it was a good come back and we just got to keep working,” said Hunt.

Chiefs have jumped one place to 12th on the DStv Premiership log with six points, while Leopards remain 15th with four points with both teams having played six matches.

Amakhosi will now travel to SuperSport United on Tuesday, 15 December.
