Pitso: Let’s give Gavin Hunt a chance

Former Bafana Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane is calling for Gavin Hunt to get his chance with the national side.

Following Stuart Baxter’s resignation last week, Mosimane has been marked as a frontrunner to take over, but the Sundowns man is ruling himself out in favour of Hunt and Benni McCarthy.

“I am doing Africa here. I am happy to be here,” Mosimane said to IOL.

“Benni, Steve (Komphela) and Gavin Hunt (are the local choices),” Mosimane said. “Gavin has been asking for a chance, and I think that we should also give him a chance.”

“We were there and couldn’t do what the country needed. Let us give Gavin a chance,” added the 2016 CAF Coach of the Year and current Coach of the Season.

Meanwhile, SAFA have confirmed they will announce the new coach by the end of this month.
