No one can say it has been an easy road for coach Gavin Hunt and Kaizer Chiefs. Many times Hunt has found himself being subjected to criticism for the teams' performances. His luck seems to have changed on that front as many people are praising him online after Chiefs qualified for the CAF quarter-finals for the first time in history.
"Gavin Hunt, the first coach to qualify Chiefs to Group stages, the first coach to progress Chiefs to the Last 8. He's doing all these with players that we say must go next season. Hai our plumber madoda #CAFCL #Amakhosi4Life," @Machidi_Madisha said.
Other people, like Madisha have headed online to Hunt for making history. Many of them seem to have forgotten his mistakes and have no been sharing positive thoughts about the coach. Read a few of their comments below:
"Literally have no words to say. I love this club, wholeheartedly. What a time to be alive. Dankie Coach Gavin Hunt Dankie Khune dankie boys.... ShappaKhosiShapppppppppa"
"I am happy for these lads because some of them including Itumeleng Khune were written off...they showed character today. Yes, we have challenges, but we will celebrate this milestone. Big congratulations to #Amakhosi4Life, Gavin Hunt, the boys, each and everyone at Naturena."
Briefly News also reported that currently placed at number nine with 23 points from 19 matches on the DStv Premiership log table, Kaizer Chiefs are facing a disastrous lowest points tally per season.
For them to improve their lowest points score they last registered back in the 2018/19 campaign, Amakhosi will have to fight and avoid this dismal points collection by winning their matches.
Under coach Gavin Hunt, the Soweto bigshots have to amass 30 out of 33 points when taking a look at their remaining league games. However, as their standard has dramatically dropped this term, it remains a doubt if they will eventually manage to get back to their winning ways and maintain consistency.
