Hunt: I don't want to go there

Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt seems to have lost interest in a long-running story regarding him and the national team.

Hunt is one of the most successful South African coaches from his days at Hellenic, Black Leopards, Moroka Swallows, SuperSport United and Wits but has always been overlooked for the Bafana Bafana job.

The 55-year-old coach was amongst the favourites to take over from Shakes Mashaba before the return of Stuart Baxter, who then resigned after Africa Cup of Nations in July.

SAFA went with former South Africa under-17 coach Molefi Ntseki for the position, and Hunt has once again been left to wonder what he needs to do to impress the association.

The league winner with Wits was quizzed about the situation after their loss to Maritzburg United in the Telkom Knockout, and he suggested he has given up on ever coaching the national team.

"I don't want to go there, you know what I mean. I wish Molefi Ntseki well, he's got off to a great start you know, I wish him well," Hunt said.

"I must have done a thousand games now you know, been in the game since 1981 so yeah, I will tell you a few stories one day."

Bafana begin their 2021 AFCON qualifiers next month against Ghana and Sudan.
