Pitso backs Hunt for Chiefs or Bucs

Premiership

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has commented on the media speculation linking rival coach Gavin Hunt with Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

Hunt is currently without a job following the sale of Bidvest Wits to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila, and has been strongly linked with both Chiefs and Pirates.

The Soweto giants have both endured agonising trophy droughts spanning five and six years respectively, and many see the four-time league-winning tactician as a potential saviour.

Mosimane, who has enjoyed a tense rivalry with the second most successful PSL coach over the years, has since endorsed the 56-year-old to return and wake one of the sleeping giants to challenge The Brazilians' dominance.

"'Gav' keeps me on my edge hey. Our games are always very close, let's be honest. I can easily say that I've been following him, he has achieved things before I even get them, to be honest. And you can't be lucky for so many years," 'Jingles' told the media.

"He's a very good coach hey, and he knows how to win. He has won a lot, and he has won trophies man. So, how can he be lucky? He's a very good coach.

"His ratio of winning games to losses is really not deteriorating, he's winning. I mean, the guy's just won – I think he won a cup last year, neh? [Note: Telkom Knockout in 2017].

"It has always been SuperSport and Wits – they will win a top 8 there, a Telkom or Nedbank somewhere, and SuperSport will pip one of those, and we also pip one there.

"Let's be honest, for the last five or six years, it's been like that. So, ja, why not? If Gav comes, I'm happy because, you must remember, I always promote 'Local is lekker'."
