Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt is committing himself to finding employment for some of his players after the club sale.
As widely reported here on Futaa, Wits will no longer exist come the end of this season, after selling their Absa Premiership status to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila F.C of Limpopo.
The club known as TTM was also quick to confirm that they will not be able to afford many of the salaries of Wits players. Additionally, the buying law states that players are not forced to be part of a new buyer but instead to decline a move to become free agents.
“I spoke to a lot of the players, most of the players individually as well, trying to give him the best guidance because I am trying to help get them football clubs to play and make the right decisions, not just for money but to make the right decisions. That’s important,” Hunt said after losing 3-2 to Mamelodi Sundowns last weekend.
The four-time league winner also touched on the uncertain future of his in-form Zimbabwean striker Terrance Terrence Dzvukamanja who scored twice on the night.
“Yeah, I’m amazed nobody has snapped him [Dzvukamanja] up, fantastic young player,” he added.
“He’s the man of the match tonight [Saturday], besides the two goals, he was outstanding, and he played very well for us in a completely different role.
“Because we don’t have Gift Motupa, that’s the story for us in the coming games,” concluded Hunt.
Up next for Wits is a battle with Kaizer Chiefs on Wednesday night.
