- South Africans are reacting with amazement to the news that coach Gavin Hunt has got the job at Chippa United
- Chippa United announced the news of former Kaizer Chiefs manager, Hunt, on social media platforms on Wednesday
- The Chilli Boys are known for being trigger-happy in firing staff and many South Africans are now sharing their views on Hunt with some saying he has lost his dignity
Chippa United have decided to put speculation to bed as they have just announced the appointment of coach Gavin Hunt. The hiring comes after the Chilli Boys chairman Siviwe Mpengesi was quoted by local media saying he wants a big gun.
Mpengesi’s club took to Twitter to unveil the former Kaizer Chiefs manager on Wednesday afternoon. The former Bidvest Wits boss left Amakhosi in May after a string of poor results in the DStv Premiership.
Despite his men struggling to collect maximum points, Amakhosi did well in the CAF Champions League and are now set to face Al Ahly in the final next week.
However, social media users are sharing contrasting remarks on the new appointment and Briefly News takes a look.
The post reads:
“He must have been very desperate yoh.”
“Counting months he will last there, haha.”
“Someone please warn Chippa United in Afrikaans. Gavin Hunt hahaha.”
“Please give him time.”
“There goes Gavin Hunt's respect and dignity when it comes to football and his CV, not every job is there for taking, sometimes we need to decline the offer for the sake of respect and dignity.”
“But it's not about hunger, it's about doing what he loves, something money cannot buy.”
“Gavin doesn't look happy, it reminds me when he was announced at Chiefs. Be warned.”
“Let's all bet how long he will last... I say within the first 10 games he will be fired.”
