Former Khosi: Hunt can come to Chiefs

Premiership

Gavin Hunt has always shot down any talk of him coaching Kaizer Chiefs, but a former Amakhosi star believes there's nothing unrealistic about a potential move.

Hunt's future is under the microscope now that Bidvest Wits' PSL status has been sold to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila, pending PSL approval.

The Wits head coach, who has won four Absa Premiership titles and eight PSL trophies overall, has always said he cannot coach Chiefs or Orlando Pirates because he needs to be in control of his signings.

He also said recently that fresh rumours linking him with Ernst Middendorp's job at Amakhosi were disrespectful because both of them have ongoing contracts with their employers.

The situation is a little bit different now for Hunt, who seems most likely to be linked with a move back to SuperSport United once the rumour mill kicks into full force.

"I think Gavin Hunt has nothing left to prove in South African football," Gary Goldstone tells KickOff.com.

"After so many years of bringing in trophies at the clubs he has coached, it is reason enough for people to want him at Chiefs, in fact long overdue."

Goldstone, who was part of the Chiefs generation that won three trophies in 2001 when the campaign was dubbed 'Operation Vat Alles', believes it could also be high time Hunt to coach the national team.

"Why has coach Hunt been overlooked, probably ignored, for the Bafana job?" he asks. "It doesn't make sense."
