Gavin Hunt says he has no offers yet, encourages Wits players to look after their futures

Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt has expressed his displeasure over TTM’s reports that he is simply expensive to employ.

The four-time Absa Premiership champion unbelievably faces an uncertain future following Wits’ shock sale to Limpopo club Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila FC.

“I know the nature of the beast. The suitcase is always at the front door, I’ve done every pre-season since 1981,” Hunt told SAFM as reported by Goal.

“This might be the first time I miss it… already I’m going mad. Obviously, I’m from Cape Town but I have lived in Gauteng for 22 years. I’m now more of a Joburger [Johannesburg resident].

“I have nothing on the table at the moment. It’s also embarrassing what TTM said about me because they didn’t even talk to me.

“I don’t like it when my name gets thrown around and gets linked with clubs that have coaches. Obviously, I would still like to be coaching next season,” added the former Cape Town Spurs, Black Leopards, Moroka Swallows and SuperSport United coach.

Hunt also took the moment to comment on the futures of his Clever Boys players - with his biggest stars like Gift Motupa, Hashim Domingo, Thulani Hlatshwayo and Deon Hotto reported to have signed for Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates.

“I don’t want to put it in public about the moves some of my players have made. But players have to think about their livelihoods.

“There are not too many big opportunities in SA when it comes to money and playing. To get the balance right is not easy.

“But I spoke to every player and wished them well. When you have a guy that’s 28 or 29, obviously he needs to look after his future and those types of things. But he needs to play football as well,” concluded Hunt.
