praised his counterpart at Orlando Pirates, Josef Zinnbauer, for the job
he's done so far.
How Josef Zinnbauer is reawakening a sleeping giant at Orlando Pirates
Hunt's charges knocked the Buccaneers out of the Nedbank Cup round of
32 via a penalty shootout on Sunday, as they were level at 3-3 after
extra-time, but he was impressed by what he saw from the Soweto giants.
"It was a good cup game [from both teams], but sometimes you've got
to lose. All credit to them though," Hunt told the media, according to
"Josef's done a good job there, they're coming around, playing good and entertaining [football] and the players are moving."
Under the guidance of Zinnbauer, Pirates have won five consecutive
league games and put themselves in position to challenge for the title.
Hunt went on to also praise one of his former players, Gabadinho
Mhango, who leads the Absa Premiership scoring charts with 14 goals for
Pirates this campaign.
He added: "I mean, Mhango, I had him for three or four years, we won
the league and he did well for us; he's scoring now, so you've got to
give credit to the coaching staff and players."
