Hunt not ruling out leaving Wits

Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt says he has not ruled out leaving the club in future if an opportunity to coach in international football crops up.

Hunt, who appears to be on the brink of winning the Premiership title with the Clever Boys, added he has ambitions to coach at a World Cup though he expressed doubts it would be with Bafana Bafana.

Despite winning three league titles with SuperSport United and bringing success to Wits, the 52-year-old has continually been overlooked over the years for the Bafana job.

He told Soccer Laduma radio, “Any coach’s ambition, my ambition, is to coach in a World Cup. That’s got to be the ultimate, even if you get smashed 3-0 coaching Iran or Saudia Arabia or something like that.

“Honestly though, I think my chances of coaching a foreign team at the World Cup are bigger than coaching our national team, maybe I’ll be a Brian Clough… I don’t hold my breath, I work hard and do my thing. I’m very happy with what I’m doing.


“I’m looking at opportunities certainly, and my club knows that. If the opportunity comes in a league that’s, I won’t say more competitive, then it must come.”
