Hunt responds to Chiefs coach talk

Premiership

Gavin Hunt has responded in his own words as media talk gathers pace that Kaizer Chiefs could be his next move.

Hunt is available next season after Bidvest Wits was sold to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzhivhandila, who cannot afford to keep him on board.

After Chiefs officially parted ways with German coach Ernst Middendorp as well as assistant coach Shaun Bartlett, Hunt's name has been thrown into the hat for the job.

Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung is now looking for someone who can bring back the winning culture at The Village.

It is no surprise therefore that Hunt, who has won the league title four times and all the other domestic cups in his coaching career, is being linked with the toughest job in South African football.

"Err... I'm on the beach at the moment on holiday," Hunt tells KickOff.com when contacted about the rumours.

"[Laughs] So I don't know who is talking now [to me from Chiefs]. I'm in Plettenberg Bay my friend, so that's it."

Has there been any contact from the Amakhosi hierarchy?

"No, nothing, nothing, nothing," he responds. "I'm on holiday boss, I don't know. My phone sometimes doesn't ring [laughs] because I'm on holiday."
