Gavin Hunt joins Chippa United after getting sacked from Kaizer Chiefs
In other sports news, Briefly News reported that 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 last 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 this week.
