Hunt sticking with SuperSport
Going nowhere (Gallo Images)
Johannesburg - SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt is going nowhere.
Hunt, who led United to their first Absa Premiership title in his first year in charge and is in line to regain the championship this season, squashed rumours that he was being head-hunted by certain clubs at the end of the season.
Speaking after the Premiership leaders drew 0-0 in a hard fought clash against an improved Wits at Milpark on Wednesday night, Hunt said the rumours of him leaving United had no substance.
Stated Hunt: "I want to make it clear that I am happy coaching United and have another two years of my contract to run and I intend to, at least, see that out. I am not interested in any other club at present but SuperSport. I think all this talk about me being linked to certain clubs is simply that. I reckon people are using the rumours to try and destabilise United. But I am going nowhere and staying where I am."
United are now six points clear of second placed Orlando Pirates who have a match in hand. United meet Bucs in what could be the league decider next Thursday. The venue is still to be announced. It is United’s home match but their ground, the Super Stadium, is being regressed in order that the stadium can be used as a training venue for June’s Confederations Cup.
