Hunt: Chiefs will win the PSL

2012-11-12 11:21

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs may only hold a four-point lead at the top of the PSL standings, but Gavin Hunt is convinced they are destined for the title this season.

Amakhosi recorded their seventh Premiership victory of the campaign on Saturday as they saw off SuperSport United 2-1 in Polokwane to maintain their unbeaten start this term.

And Hunt, who saw his Matsatsantsa side suffer their first defeat of the season, believes there are no teams in the PSL currently that can challenge the Glamour Boys on the field.

"They should win the league now - nobody will catch them," United coach Hunt told The Sowetan.

"I don't think any of the teams below them are showing any type of form."

Meanwhile, Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter admits there is plenty of pressure that comes with being at the top, but says his players are primed to continue their stellar form.

"We're top of the (standings), and we've got to live with that. It's always easier to be the hunter than the hunted," the Englishman said.

"We've got to keep telling people that we're not going to buckle. And if they want to take over top of the log then they're going to have to play for it."

    Too soon to tell mr hunt,they must ask us(sundowns) as we held dat position for quite few season without getting over the line.

    He know what hes talking about, he won League title three times with SS. As for my team KC. We know such statements its a mind games and we need to take every game like cup final. Mancini once said Man U will win BPL last season and hes the one who won it.

    i still think Pirates will take it,the last two seasons pirates won the league in the second round so unless chiefs keep winning am afraid Bucs will defend it.

      nhlapop - 2012-11-12 12:20

      Pirates need to start to score more goals if they want to win the league.

      honest.mrwebo - 2012-11-12 13:28

      Pirates won the leauge because Chiefs did not compete , they lost silly games to opposition that was not so strong when Pirates on the other hand took every point on offer . Things are different now , Chiefs went on the market finally and bought the required material to challenge for league honors. 10 games into the season they lead by 4 points and are the team to beat , wait and see their game against the defending chanpions Pirates in December I think that game is on the 08th December , lets talk after that game .

  • sbahle.wela - 2012-11-12 12:08

    Consistacy and lots of hard work and ability to rise above all obstacles is the reciepy to win the league

  • lundiengxabane.tshuta - 2012-11-12 12:16

    As SSU fan I fully agree with my coach I watch them(chiefs) this past weekend they are a team to watch, but its still early to tell.

  • lundiengxabane.tshuta - 2012-11-12 12:19

    Lets wait & c but from wht I've seen against my team SSU I agree with Mr. Hunt

  • nickwill.reen - 2012-11-12 12:24

    We shall see after the festive season how discipline the boys are. Of course, the afcon break? Well, the bucs have proven themselves before, we shall see.

  • luvnicer - 2012-11-12 12:48

    Be careful of what u wish for Mr Hunt,u said the same thing about Sundowns last season nd what happened,the real champs passed them like parcel waiting to be collected.The fact that the Chimpazee has beaten u doesn't make the the league winner..we r sitting pretty good behind them nd when the right moment comes we(Pirates)will march pass them to defend what is rightfully nd legally ours

      lubabalo.kahla - 2012-11-12 14:43

      correction he said that about Pirates

  • ettiene.esterhuizen.7 - 2012-11-12 12:58

    Amakhosi for life!!!!!

  • tokollo.moeletsi - 2012-11-12 12:58

    You don't win the league by defeating Super-Sport.... Careful Mr Hunt there is still more games to be played.....

  • john.sesoai - 2012-11-12 13:19

    khozi4life...will win the league

  • john.sesoai - 2012-11-12 13:19

  • phindile.zina - 2012-11-12 13:40

    Come again, Mr Gavin Hunt, are you saying 'Chiefs will win the PSL' Say it loud!!!

  • siphiwo.maurice - 2012-11-12 14:19

    That is so quick Mr Hunt. have you thrown in the towel, just by loosing over the week-end? Why don't you be a man and say, you are angry because Mabuti did not pitch up for the game you wanted to win? The race for the league, is just very long Mr Hunt, even you too, can join the race.

      lubabalo.kahla - 2012-11-12 14:41

      bra please think before you comment, what do you mean "did not pitch up for the game you wanted to win" he wants to win all games chap come now

  • thamsanqag - 2012-11-12 14:27

    Big call very early in the season by Mr Hunt. We will have to wait and see, its not nice when you have to eat your words though. But I'm sure these are just mind games to add pressure on Chiefs

      godfrey.sofonia - 2012-11-12 15:34

      hey bra mark mr.hunt words khosi is unstoppable

  • leonardo.newton.18 - 2012-11-12 14:33

    Its a norm for Gavin Hunt to shift focus , when Supersport was beaten by Pirates he said that's what happened when you sell your best players to your rival teams, they come back an haunt you. @ da time it was Modise

  • cosmas.ngwenya - 2012-11-12 14:37

    Sour Grapes mr. hunt, jus tok about how u lost, not championship now, come on man.... are u giving up alredy as superport, i wonder what your employer is thinking about wat u hv just said - fire u - u dont have ambition in wat u r doing at supersport- goooooo!

  • makobe.ntsoane - 2012-11-12 15:18

    Chiefs hasn't played all the teams yet,How do you then say they will win the league or is it decided after every Supersport win

      gordon.mazibuko - 2012-11-12 16:10

      Dont be stupid here. The man is voicing an opinion and seeing as he has won 3 leagues with a shoestring budget I would listen when he speaks. What have you won recently?

  • godfrey.sofonia - 2012-11-12 15:37

    surely chiefs will make it .rea shapa

      chuenec1 - 2012-11-15 23:46
