- Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt previously slammed PSL clubs for appointing unqualified foreign coaches ahead of qualified local ones
- Hunt's controversial statement implied that local clubs would prefer to put their faith in foreign plumbers and fishermen with fake CVs
- Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp seems to have been annoyed by Hunt's comments and responded by saying that it's not "normal" to discuss these things
Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt caused a stir when he lashed out at PSL clubs for favouring foreign coaches over local ones.
Hunt implied that South African clubs would rather appoint a foreign unqualified fisherman or plumber than pick a local mentor.
The controversial statement also indicated that Hunt feels that many of the foreign coaches boast fake CVs.
Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp seems to have taken exception to Hunt's comments as reported by KickOff.com.
Middendorp said, "It's not usual you know to talk about barbers, fishermen and whatever."
The Amakhosi mentor added, "Let's talk about the game, the game facing the facts, what happens there in moments if you are in ball possession, if you are working against the ball, what happens in transition in both directions, that's what it is and the rest is something for the public."
Middendorp's response followed Kaizer Chiefs' 2-0 victory over AmaZulu on Tuesday.
Briefly.co.za noted that the Amakhosi regained top spot on the PSL log after the win, which is a huge improvement from last season.
