Hunt has voice his frustrations regarding the continual breaks in PSL action due to the international fixtures which come so early in the PSL season, reports KickOff.com.
“It’s frustrating, I don’t know why I’m speaking about this, I mean we can’t have these FIFA weeks in the beginning of the seasons,” Hunt said.
Hunt believes that "the whole world is complaining" about the international breaks but conceded that there is little that he or anyone else could do to rectify the schedule.
“I mean we played two games last month, we play two league games this month, so we play four league games in two months; and then in November and December we play. I don’t know how many league games (up to nine).”
However, the coach says he understands the breaks but feels that there could have been at least two games squeezed in midweek to lessen the load on all the teams once the busy festive season period hits.
Wits currently lie in third position, with four wins from their opening seven games but chase runaway PSL leaders Kaizer Chiefs by eight points.
In the meantime Hunt will be preparing his side for the challenge that Mamelodi Sundowns pose when the two PSL giants meet on Saturday, October 18 at Loftus Versfeld when the league resumes.Kick-off is at 18:00.
