Myeni: Any team will grab their chance to have Gavin Hunt


Former Bidvest Wits midfielder Sifiso Myeni is of the opinion that Gavin Hunt won’t struggle to secure a job in the Premier Soccer League (PSL).

The speculation about Hunt’s future arise after GladAfrica Championship side Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM), who have announced the acquisition of Bidvest Wits PSL status made it known that they can’t afford to retain Hunt as head coach next season.

“Gavin as a coach has established so much in his coaching career. I’m sure any team will grab their chance to have him. I read TTM say he’s too expensive but what do you expect? He must be expensive,” Myeni told Eyewitness News.

“He’s won trophies. Looking at the coach, he will want to go somewhere where he knows he will do a good job and has the players that he needs, and he is the man in charge. For him, it won’t be that stressful (to get a job),” – Myeni. Picture: Bidvest Wits.

“As a coach, your CV speaks for yourself. Whoever is going to get the coach is going to be lucky to get a coach like him, who knows how to win things,” added Myeni who was released by TS Sporting earlier this June.

The Soweto-born dribbling wizard says Wits owners need to be ‘honest with the players’ as it seems like they are in the dark about what is happening at the Braamfontein-based outside.

“If there is any truth in the club being sold, it’s very disheartening. My heart goes to all the players that have played and all the people who took the club from what it was to where it is now and I’m sure even them they will also feel the pain,” he said.

“As a player you don’t know what to do. Some players have been saying they are going to training as usual and are waiting to get back and now the club is being sold,” – Myeni. Picture: Bidvest Wits.

“And when you ask the team, they say nothing has been finalised. For a team like Wits, and the people in higher positions, they need to be frank and honest with the players. They need to sit down with the players and talk to them before it’s too late,” concluded Myeni.
