- BidVest Wits coach Gavin Hunt feels that Kaizer Chiefs already have one hand on the Premier Soccer League title
- Hunt cited the huge 10-point lead that the Amakhosi boast
- Hunt seemingly ruled out Wits' chances of winning the title due to their commitments in the Caf Confederation Cup
BidVest Wits coach Gavin Hunt feels that Kaizer Chiefs may as well be crowned winners of the Premier Soccer League.
Although less than half of the season has been played, Hunt feels that Chiefs' lead is unassailable.
The Amakhosi boast a 10-point buffer over their closest rivals and Hunt feels it would take too much to haul them in.
Hunt said, “It’s for them to lose it now. It's a big lead”
The Wits mentor added, "The other teams got to win three or four matches in a row to catch them."
Hunt seemingly touched on some of the controversy surrounding Chiefs and the alleged bias they've received from referees this season.
Hunt added, "As I said‚ there’s been a lot of talk about how they got there but they’ve done this.”
SowetanLIVE reported that Hunt bemoaned Wits' playing schedule and feels that it puts them at a huge disadvantage this season.
The Clever Boys have a gruelling fixture list due to their participation in the Caf Confederation Cup and their next encounter against Djoliba in Mali epitomises the challenge they're faced with.
Briefly.co.za gathered that travel and fatigue are massive stumbling blocks for Wits this season.
Hunt explained, “But [in Africa] you’ve got three flights to Mali. That’s the problem. To get back and then you play on a Wednesday."
