“Hunt Is Brave Enough To Sell Big Stars” – Reader’s Voice

Default

Gavin Hunt won the league with Bidvest Wits in the same way he won it with SuperSport United. He sold the big names, or rather the most popular players from his team to other teams like ready-made food and after that, snatched the title when the so-called big teams were nursing big names.

In his first season at SuperSport United, Mr Hunt had this exciting player, Teko Modise, who could cut through defences like a knife through butter. But Hunt sold him to Pirates and just after Modise's departure, Matsatsantsa were crowned PSL champions.

Before the 2008/09 season, Mamelodi Sundowns come knocking for Hunt's top performers, Siboniso Gaxa and Katlego Mphela and after winning the championship again, but he got Anthony Laffor from Jomo Cosmos and he defended the title, even though he lost some of his stars to Downs. Orlando Pirates signed Daine Klate and Katlego Mashego and Hunt lost his power.

Last season, again Hunt showed that he is brave enough to sell big stars when he sold Sibusiso Vilakazi for big money to Sundowns, but, a season later, it is Hunt again who celebrated the title. Hunt’s strategy is to keep his players at a level where they can form a team and play as a team, rather than be disturbed by individuals.

Which stars do you think Hunt will sell in the next window? Does he believe in development or is he just lucky to get hard workers?

When a player wins personnel accolades he become too big for his boots n he causes n lot of tension in the change room that leads to forces against the coach so ya Hunt did so well in this department .

I wnt to congratulate sfiso myeni for making the switch from bucks to wits..the boy was a captain of the club when pirates signed hm and he stayed 3 seasons at bucks and won only 1 nedbank cup..last season pirates put him to transfer list and wits resigned their former captain..immediately after few months they won mtn8 and now the championship something he would never have achieved with parktown based club..the boy is enjoying his football again as he have been playing regularly lately under no pressure. Wits is slowly making the name for themselves in the psl..to win a double in the psl is not childs play but under the mentor of Gavin everythng seemed so easly. WEll done the clever boys you derseve it nw plz take caf champions league crcly with the coach you have and quality players and the support from management you can go on to be African champions only if you are ambitious enough to say you wnt it..

@Janco61 Are you calling winning four league titles ''luck''? Who was tired when he win it three times in a row with SSU if now its because dUnU players were tired? Sometimes we have to give credit instead of making excuses, i won't even be suprised if you say Klate is lucky to be in a right place at a right time and surrounded by quality players.

So does this mean that Chiefs should not worry about signing "quality" players because they kill the team. PieRats signed all the ''quality'' players but are outside the top 10..?? A big part of Gavin Hunt's success is that the media does not focus on him and his players. He can do whatever he wants and no one attacks him. At Chiefs Paez scores 2 goals as a substitute and all the fans and media reports want him to start the next game. The coach cannot execute his plans without fans and media interfering. Gavin went 4 season without a anything and the media did not make noise. Steve loses 2 games and media ask if he should be fired ...

As for Vilakazi he made a very good decision, the move to sell him to Downs and get 2 players malajila and ngele with championship experience strengthened his team and weakened his competitor since Vilakazi doesnt offer anything significant to Downs hance Malalija and Ngele has emense impact.
