Hunt: We threw the league away


Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt believes his side should have won the Absa Premiership title this season. 

A disappointed Hunt said defensive errors cost them the title after being near the top of the log for the majority of the campaign.

"Disappointed, very disappointed because we know we should've won this league, we were top of the log for more than three quarters. We threw it away, we didn't have good defensive performances in key moments," Hunt explained.

"In the first round we had 30 points and I told the guys if we can get another 30 in the second round and reach 60 we can be champions. That was proven right... we should be champions."

Hunt, who is one of the most experienced coaches in South African football, shared his thoughts on the unresolved case between Mamelodi Sundowns and the PSL.

"There are still court cases, we don't really know what's gonna happen, it's mind blowing. Team lifts a trophy today and it could be taken away. We should never have such, this issue should've been resolved before the last games," he added.

Hunt saluted Sundowns for their dominance in the league, especially club president Patrice Motsepe for putting his money where is mouth is and coach Pitso Mosimane for joining the club of coaches who have won the league titles four times.

"I wish them well, Pitso has done well, the team keeps growing not only here but in Africa as well."
