Uganda Cranes and Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango says that coach Gavin Hunt will win trophies with Kaizer Chiefs.
Hunt was on Thursday unveiled as Chiefs new coach for a three-year deal following the sacking of Ernst Middendorp after the side blew away their league title chances.
Onyango, who worked with Hunt at Supersport United and Bidvest Wits (loan from Sundowns), also said that the appointment is good for the league.
Speaking earlier before Hunt’s official unveiling, Onyango as quoted by Four Four Two, said:
“He [Hunt] is a fantastic coach‚ I believe it would be a new chapter for him. He will probably [be] managing a bigger team than the other few he has been managing.
“But football is the same, the mentality remains that he will drive them to win trophies. He has won trophies with SuperSport and Wits and we know the quality that he has as a coach.
“Going to a bigger team‚ the anticipation and what they expect from him is big. He has done it before. I believe if he is given a chance to coach Kaizer Chiefs he has the ability as a person and a coach.
“It’s always good to have a competitive coach like Gavin in the league. When you look at the games between Wits and Sundowns‚ it was always been competitive. He drives his players to give their best so it will be good for the league and football in general.”
Hunt, the five-time PSL coach of the season, has won the league four times with two different teams.
Kaizer Chiefs, with four league titles, has not tasted the league championship since 2014/15 season.
