Ngobe: Gavin is stressed at Chiefs


Former Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates midfielder Dumisa Ngobe says it beats him why Gavin Hunt is not doing more player rotation.

Although Chiefs have shown have shown signs of revival of late, Ngobe says Hunt is still still not giving everyone equal opportunities.

"You know what is painful is that Gavin is trying with whatever that he's got to try and get a combination," Ngobe tells

"I think [Samir] Nurkovic's return assisted them to have that little boost to go forward. Without Nurkovic, Chiefs didn't have direction. You can eliminate two, three defenders with him because of the strength or the height that he has.

"So for now he is still trying to find his feet, he has not found his feet, Gavin Hunt at Kaizer Chiefs. They are still trying to find a team.

"There's players that are not playing at Kaizer Chiefs under Gavin Hunt even though they are still contracted... Katsande, I don't know the exact reason he is not playing them. Maybe these are not his favourite players, I don't know.

"You know coaches have their own philosophy in terms of players. But why is he not playing them in the struggle that he is in? I don't know why. There's certain players who get that freedom of play, but not everyone. He is not rotating all his squad."

Asked if he thought Hunt should tamper with the current team just for the sake of giving everyone an opportunity, Ngobe replied with a question.

"Which players are winning games? It's luck... I think he doesn't know who to put in and who to take out. I don't want lie to you. Wherever he is, he is stressed right now."
