Gavin Hunt makes another Bafana job comment

Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt has played down his chances of becoming the next Bafana Bafana coach.

Hunt, who is the long-serving PSL coach and one of the most successful with four league titles, in once again eyed as a possible successor after Stuart Baxter’s resignation last week.

With many local experts long calling for Hunt to finally get his due opportunity, Hunt has been made to comment on the vacant job.

"It doesn't matter, I don't pay attention to that," Hunt said to Kick Off on whether he is underrated.

Asked if he could be the next man at SAFA, he said: "I don't think it's the right forum to discuss that, I've supported them from day one in everything they do, from all the coaches they had. They've made decisions and it's not my place to comment," he explained.

"I've had more interviews at SAFA than anybody [laughs]. Everybody wants the national team to do well, but it's not for me to comment on that,” concluded the Capetonian after opening the season with a 3-0 win over AmaZulu last Saturday night.

Other tipped candidates included Pitso Mosimane, Benni McCarthy and rather surprisingly Steve Komphela.
