I’m not going anywhere – Hunt
Posted: 11 May 2009 Time: 6:13 am
SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt has categorically denied that he will be taking over at Kaizer Chiefs next season.
Shortly after picking up his second Absa Premiership title, Hunt pledged his continued commitment to Matsatsantsa, saying: “I'm not going anywhere. I'm staying with SuperSport United next season.” Hunt’s statement effectively scotches persistent rumours that he is one of the candidates earmarked to replace Muhsin Ertugral at Naturena next season. Also linked to the vacant position as head coach at Amakhosi is former Ghana national team coach Ratomir Dujkovic, which KickOff.com first speculated about on April 13. “I am very happy with what I have achieved at SuperSport in my second year and am already looking forward to more success at the club next season." “Everyone involved deserves praise ... management, players and our supporters, whose voices kept encouraging us throughout the season. “I am expecting things to be tougher for us next season, but with the same commitment and hard work from everybody I am quite confident that this team will reach even greater heights next season,” Hunt tells KickOff.com. The former Hellenic player refused to speculate on any changes in the squad for next season, even though Andre Arendse is reported to be ready to hang up his gloves, while Elias Pelembe and Anthony Laffor continue to be linked with moves overseas.
