Hunt drops massive Nurkovic hint


Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt has dropped a hint around the availability of striker Samir Nurkovic.

Nurkovic has been a major absence for Chiefs this season following his breakthrough campaign in the PSL last term.

The Serbian talisman netted 13 times in 31 outings since arriving in South Africa last season, but has yet to feature since undergoing groin surgery back September.

His recovery has taken all of three months, with the club announcing earlier this week that he has finally returned to training following his successful rehabilitation.

However, Hunt revealed further details surrounding the 28-year-old's absence before their 2-2 DStv Premiership draw at home to Black Leopards on Wednesday evening.  

"Nurkovic has been fit for about two weeks now, but obviously there are other problems, so that must be sorted out,” Hunt told SuperSport TV in his pre-match interview.

"So, I mean, he could play but let’s leave it for another day."

This has raised flags surrounding Nurkovic's future, with the striker having earlier been linked with a shock move to Al Ahly, where former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is currently in charge.

'Kokota' signed a three-year deal with Amakhosi in July last year.
