Jabulani Mendu has dismissed suggestions that Kaizer Chiefs' upcoming clash against Gavin Hunt's Chippa United has added significance.
Former coach Hunt will return for the first time to FNB Stadium to face Kaizer Chiefs since being sacked last year by the Soweto giants.
Mendu who played under Hunt at Moroka Swallows, says the 57-year-old has nothing to prove to his former employers.

"Gavin has nothing to prove to Chiefs as well as Chiefs have nothing to prove to Gavin," Mendu tells Kickoff.com.
"It's just another game for three points. If Gavin can manage to lift a cup or guide Chippa to a Top Eight finish, then he will have proved that he's still a good coach.
"Also, if Kaizer Chiefs can win a cup without Gavin, that will mean they made the right decision to move on from him.
"So this is just a game of three points, no one has to prove anything to the other. Both teams are not doing well, although Chippa have started very well. But, unfortunately, they've lost their last two games, if I'm not mistaken.
"But let's not make it a big game, it's not a big game, it's Kaizer Chiefs at the end of the day playing against a small team in Chippa United. That will never change."
