Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach coach Gavin Hunt was happy for his players who won their first title as they triumph against Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 Cup final on Saturday.

The Clever Boys thrashed Pitso Mosimane's charges 3-0 after a brace from Daine Klate and an Eleazar Rodgers strike at a wet the Mbombela Stadium.

The victory was the first piece of silverware since Hunt took over the university club in 2013.

It had not been for a lack of trying for Hunt after losing 3-1 in the Nedbank Cup final against Orlando Pirates in 2014.

"The whole team was magnificent. It's a great occasion for the club. I've won trophies before and some of these guys haven't won but it's a start," Hunt told SuperSport.

"I've been here three, four years now and we've built a little team here so we have to keep feeding it, keep feeding it, keep nursing it and keep working on it and keep trying to get the right players.

"I thought we were very good. I thought in the first-half we had two or three great chances to make it three or four nil and then it would have been over.

"I just set up the team and try and play the best way we can play against opposition who are a very good side and certainly I wish them well [for the CAF Champions League final].

"I set up the team each week for how I feel we need to play in a certain game or whatever we need to do."
